New direction for FaST in season 2018/19

With the new season just underway FaST would like to take the opportunity to
remind supporters of the support that we offer the club both financially and in
practical terms with the various projects undertaken. This is mutually
beneficial to the club to enhance the ground infrastructure and to supporters
for the improvement of their matchday experience. All this could not be done
without the support of our members with subscriptions, donations and
voluntary work and we are proud to say that since the Trust formation in 2005
over £140,000 has been raised and donated to the club. In monetary terms this
is worth much more to the club as a considerable part of the work has been
carried out on a voluntary basis thereby saving substantial labour costs. Recent
projects include providing part of the funding towards the improvement of the
players tunnel area and the away dressing room. Also during the close season
purchasing replacement lamps needed for the floodlights. Our next planned
project is to refurbish the upstairs toilets adjoining the Platinum Lounge.

FaST Ground Development Fund

FaST has launched a new fund raising scheme known as FaST Ground
Development Fund replacing the Boost The Boro Fund and is geared solely at
raising funds towards FaST ground projects and will no longer support the
player budget. FaST has a long history of providing funds towards improving
and maintaining the club’s ground facilities and we sincerely hope that the
club’s fans will get behind this new initiative and pledge more money,
particularly by way of regular standing order payments.
The new scheme is to include members and non-members and involves the
following methods of payment strictly towards FaST projects:-

  • Standing Orders, Electronic Transfers or Cheques made payable to FaST
  • One-off donations to FaST specifically for FaST Development Funding
  • By donation bucket on Matchdays on the 50/50 table
  • Membership fees 

FaST have recently changed banking arrangements and the new account
details are:-
Sort Code: 30-90-89
Account Number: 37588460

Joining FaST

FaST is planning a new membership drive to give more support to the club. We
already have a say in the running of the club as one of our Board is a Director
of the club. Also regular meetings are held with club Directors to discuss
matters of mutual interest. To make the joining process even easier and for
those who prefer the electronic route, all that you need to do is go the the
FaST website and hit the join button in the menu bar and follow the on screen
directions. Joining can now be a paperless exercise. Alternatively, joining forms
are held at the 50/50 table on matchdays and our Membership Secretary Paul
Spicer will be happy to process.

Junior Membership

For the first time FaST have taken the decision to launch a Junior Membership
status for Under 16’s at a joining fee of £3. This will entitle junior members to
the same benefits of reduced cost travelling on the away minibuses and
discounted price of club merchandise in the Club Shop as full members. It is
also intended to offer a goodie bag upon joining. So we hope many young
supporters and their parents will encourage them to join.
Finally, may FaST take the opportunity to wish the players and management of
Farnborough FC and their supporters a happy and rewarding season.
