Elected members serve for a maximum of two years before re-election. Half of the elected board will be up for re-election at each AGM. The initial directors were appointed by the steering committee setup to form the Trust.

The steering committee included representatives from all parts of the Football Club and specifically included representation from the Supporters’ Club, the Vice Presidents’ Club, Social Club Committee, Farnborouth Town Youth and Fans for Farnborough. The committee included fans from all sides of the ground and of all ages.

The first three officers were appointed from within the committee. To operate correctly the board must have between 6 and 12 members. The trust is always looking for people to contribute their energies and ideas. If you would like to be considered by the committee or you know someone who you believe would be suitable, please contact the trust.
