TRUST STFC vice-chair Alex Pollock outlines the past fortnight for Swindon Town while looking ahead to a couple of key meetings for the group.

It has been a slow start to the League Two season for STFC, but we have points on the board and names on the scoresheet. We have three draws and three points from the last three league games, so you can rest assured somewhere in Nottinghamshire, Luke Williams will be proud.

There have definitely been a lot more positives to take from Tuesday night’s performance against Leyton Orient than there perhaps were in our previous games. Hopefully, a sign that we’re moving in the right direction.

Last weekend, Trust board member Bazil Solomon participated in the Swindon and Wiltshire Pride March which was followed by the town’s first-ever Pride Picnic at Queen’s Park. As well as representing the Trust and providing the local community with information about all things STFC, a batch of sensory packs was also distributed.

TrustSTFC secretary, Stuart Woollard, attended this month’s advisory board meeting for us last week, and we are anticipating the meeting minutes and actions to be published very soon.

Topics of discussion included the recent court proceedings involving Able, the continued reduction of debt (particularly that with HMRC), progress of season-ticket sales, and some positive developments involving the STFC Women’s team.

The September meeting will be taking place in a few weeks’ time, so if any of our Trust members have questions or issues they would like raised, please drop these over to us via email so they can be logged and tracked accordingly.

Our monthly TrustSTFC board meeting takes place this evening, and we’ll be discussing all our active workstreams, including the latest developments on The County Ground acquisition, our new website, diversity, and fan engagement. Please get in touch if you have any queries.

And finally, looking ahead to the weekend… will we see our first win of the campaign against Rochdale?

Fingers firmly crossed. COYR.
