15 years of Posh

This is a story from the SD archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Posh Supporters Trust (PST) are celebrating their 15th Year as a trust and we are proud to celebrate it with them.

In 2003 PST was formed against the backdrop of frustration surrounding Peterborough United Football Club. The club had been on the market for 18 months and the threat of administration was ever looming during the formation of the trust.

Since their creation, PST has navigated several scenarios including successfully lobbying against a planning permission to demolish one ‘end’ of the football ground to building an online museum to ensure memories of the club are never forgotten and fans are able to enjoy the history of the club for years to come.

The trust has set up several initiatives to serve the community including the SMILE ticket scheme which awards free match tickets to deserving people in the local community.
PST has, along with other Posh fan groups, also funded the cost of a wheelchair enclosure for less abled supporters.

The tireless work of the volunteers at the supporters trust is second to none and we look forward to the next fifteen years working alongside them.

STAR is still shining bright after 19 years

STAR (Supporters’ Trust At Reading) was launched in March 2002 and has made steady progress ever since, becoming one of the larger Trusts when judged on membership numbers. Its origin is in the old Reading Football Supporters’ Club (RFSC, founded in 1930). Its chairman Roger Titford saw the opportunity offered by the new type of trust body and set up a working party to convert RFSC into a Trust that had a wider appeal than an old supporters’ club.
