News From The Trust


It has certainly been a busy week: The vote that has recently taken place to decide up the future of John Akinde (to sell or not to sell) has certainly brought the MyFC project back in the public eye, with many headlines stating how many members had voted.

In all of this of course the main factor was did John wish to leave the club and take that big step up:

I suppose it would be un-realistic to think he would not. For the vast majority of members that was the main question and once they were re-assured that he did then I doubt anyone would really have not wanted to grant him his wish.

Of course he will be a hard act to follow, but I would presume there is much satisfaction within the coaching and management team, that John came through the Pace system and broke into the first team in such spectacular fashion. Liam did not over play him and even when most of us would have just stuck him in anyway, he was held back and allowed to grow in confidence to become the accomplished player he is today and this is why several clubs in the end were wishing to get him to put pen to paper. I think the whole episode has been managed perfectly and hopefully John will go on to do bigger and better things, the money coming to the club will be used to benefit the team and the club and we will have another favourite son to watch out for every week. Good luck John, from us all.


I attended a meeting a few days ago about the future of a new stadium for the club. As many of you will be aware the speculation has been rambling on for a few years as to the where and why, only on Saturday I was assured that the place the stadium was going to be built  had been decided and I was then told in total confidence where it was going to be. Well all I can say is, at the this moment in time no one has decided exactly where it will be, a few sites are being identified and talks are in progress, things are moving on and progress is being made but as to the actual site, no this had not be decided upon and I am sure all of you will understand that with the sensitivities that always surround getting planning permission and funding, all possible sites will be kept’ in strictest confidence until everything is signed and sealed. All I can say is that the people involved are as passionate as ever about this being a successful project and news will be given to you all at the first opportunity.


We have a few seats available for the Forest Green trip at the moment we have 24 people traveling down to Gloucester. We have the capacity for either 32 or 39 depending on the response from you tonight. The transport will either be two mini-buses or a 39 seater coach, but regardless of which mode, we will be leaving the ground at 10.00am sharp.

If you would like to travel with us, pop over to the Trust hut and speak to Ian.

 News From The Trust


I was delighted to make the presentation to Lance before the Mansfield game a few weeks ago. To have the England C keeper playing for E.U.F.C is of huge benefit to the team and Lance has shown what an outstanding keeper he is many, many times. Apart from supporting the team and showing our appreciation in the time-honoured way, it is difficult to show any player how much we appreciate them. Lance was both surprised and delighted that his England success was recognised by us all and that he has the trophy to keep for the rest of his life.


With the cost of living and in particular the price of fuel on the increase, I suppose I should not be surprised that the numbers for away travel are increasing. You could have traveled to and from Rushden, Torquay and Lewes for just £45.00, not bad when you consider the number of miles. Sadly one or two people were disappointed and could not travel with us to Lewes as they left booking a seat until the very last minute and as it was over the bank holiday we were unable to change the mode of transport.

With games to Forest Green and Wrexham coming up on the 6th and 13th September respectively I think my advice would be to book early to avoid disappointment. It could not be easier simply pop over to the trust hut (next to the shop) and speak to Ian, who will be able to give leaving times a costs, a small deposit secures you place.


I would like to apologise if you have had to wait for us to print you shirt over the past couple of weeks. W3e have been helping out the club by printing the team shirts and this has of course taken up a significant amount of time. Hopefully we have almost completed them, so normal service will be resumed. The cost is the same as last year, so for just £10.00 you can have a name and number printed.


It has been pleasing over the last couple of weeks to see how many people have already paid their subscription to the Fleet Trust. There have also been a few new members which is hugely encouraging.

The Trust board is always looking for ways to encourage new members to join as well as the retention of existing members both of which are equally important to us. Some members have been with us from day one and we are really grateful to them for keeping the faith in the Trust and the TB. If you have allowed your membership to lapse, please think carefully about coming back, unless your details have changed you do not even have to fill in a membership form; your old membership is simply made-live again. We are also giving an FA trophy mug to everyone who joins/renews/re-joins, so not only are you supporting the Trust and the club but getting a lovely memento to keep from that great day we all shared in May this year.


Last but not least, congratulations to Sarah Jane, who was the successful candidate in the recent MyFC, SB election, to replace ChrisP who resigned recently. I am sure she will be a very good addition to the board and I look forward to working with her in the coming weeks and months.
