Having made a very conscious decision three years ago to become much more focused on our community responsibilities, we launched the clubs Gift of Use initiative. This was aimed at providing free use of the club’s GESS 3G arena, function rooms and main pitch, for a variety of charities, primary schools , youth clubs, local FA's and much more. This initiative has proved very successful. We have always wanted to do much more, but our financial obligations have made this somewhat prohibitive. So, with this in mind, we are currently investigating all possible avenues that will allow us to redistribute net income. This will allow for a far more expansive approach to the Clubs Gift of Use initiative, and give us a working budget to reinvest back into the club, ensuring that St Neots Town FC continues to thrive and become the hub of the community.  There has been a lot of speculation regarding voluntary demotion to step 5 football. We have a care of duty to explore all avenues to ensure the long term stability of St Neots Town FC as such we have been in open dialogue with the FA. The Southern League have been informed that we do not wish to pursue this avenue and that we will continue to play our football, albeit at a reduced first team budget, at step 3 or step 4 should we be relegated and this has been sanctioned by both the FA and the Southern League.   Your support, whether as a trusted supporter, business partner, advertiser, or sponsor, is and will remain, very important to the long term health of the football club, and makes a huge contribution towards all that we are trying to achieve. From August 2020, we will be launching the St Neots Town FC Partnership Community Fund. This will help us to facilitate a far broader support mechanism of community projects, as well as continuing our Gift of Use initiative, and a monetary fund. Our promise, is that from August 2020, twenty percent of all money generated by the club by way of business partnership, advertising, naming rights or sponsorship, will be allocated to our Community Fund. Businesses supporting us will benefit from the association of investing in well worth community projects.   Over the next few months the club will potentially undergo a huge transformation, necessary if we are to ensure that the club remains healthy, and give it the opportunity to become the blue print for what a community football club should be.   Thank you for your continued support.   THE BOARD – ST NEOTS TOWN FC

UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW Last weekend was hugely significant and disappointing for the Club overshadowed by the news that serious consideration was being given to voluntary resignation from Step Three of the Football Pyramid.   FA regulations direct that in these circumstances a relegation of at least two steps is mandatory meaning that the UCL Premier Division is the best the club can hope for in the 2019/20 season if the proposed change is followed through.   The match scheduled for Saturday at home to Coalville then fell foul of the weather and then both Lowestoft and Halesowen picked up unexpected victories to dump the club back in the relegation zone for the first time since Christmas.   That was preceded by an announcement that Manager Matt Clements would vacate his role at the end of the season and then the departure of Assistant Manager Jack Cassidy and the two most senior players on the books.   Team skipper Luke Knight (141 includes 17 as sub) and defender Taylor Parr (125 includes 2 as sub) had amassed 247 first team starts between them – experience that will be impossible to fill in the sides’ remaining 14 league matches and the Hunts Senior Cup Final this season.   These departures were followed a few hours later by senior team regulars Johnny Herd, Russell Short, Tom Wood and James Hall.  On Tuesday a very inexperienced side made up of the remainder of the squad plus the Youth team battled bravely against play-off seeking Biggleswade Town only to lose to a single late goal.   The spirit and effort of the side was truly amazing and now life must go on under newly appointed Manager Marc Abbott who is to work in conjunction with Matt Clements before the latter ‘moves upstairs’ to his new role at the end of the season.   So on Saturday the side make their first ever visit to Tamworth who were relegated from the Conference (now National League) at the end of last season.   Tamworth currently in 17th place in the table just three points ahead of St Neots are on their third Manager of the season, former St Neots Manager Dennis Greene having had a short spell at their helm.   In the first meeting of the two sides at the Premier Plus Stadium a goalless draw resulted and with both teams now in urgent need of points it will be a vital meeting.   John Walker

The Board Of Directors are excited to confirm the appointment of MARC ABBOTT as the new First Team Manager. MARC joins us from Thurlow Nunn side Haverhill Rovers, having been associated with the club for fourteen years , a feat rarely seen in the game these days. MARC leaves Rovers sitting in 11th place in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division after a 15 month spell in the managerial hot seat. He was also this season's leading scorer with 10 goals from midfield. Holding the Uefa B badge, he has become a highly sought after coach and we are absolutely overjoyed to have secured our number one target to replace the outgoing MATT CLEMENTS, who has become the Club's new Director of Football. MARC will be in charge for Saturday's trip to Tamworth and will work closely with MATT CLEMENTS as the pair prepare for the 2019/2020 season. MARC'S statement can be found to the right of the page (click to enlarge) Please join us in welcoming MARC and his family to the Premier Plus Stadium and we hope your tenure with us will be both successful and enjoyable.

Matt Clements Matt has informed us that he is to step down at the end of the 2018-2019 season after discussions with the Football Club. We have always enjoyed a great relationship with Matt and made it clear from the start that we would like him to have a long-term involvement with the club, so, we are pleased to announce that Matt has accepted the role of Director of Football and will replace Iain Parr who has become a share holder of St Neots Town FC Ltd.  Matt will oversee all aspects of the club’s football development and will work alongside the club’s Academy Manager and Lead Scholarship coach.  Matt's first role will be to work with Iain and Barry to start the process of recruiting a new manager who we hope to have in place before the end of the season to make the transition as smooth as possible. We would like to go on record and thank Matt for all he has achieved as First Team manager and it goes without saying that we are thrilled that he will remain an integral part of the football club's future.

UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW St Neots now face another critical weekend as they travel to Needham Market for their next Southern League engagement and the host side will be eagerly looking to complete a convincing league double.   Back in November the Suffolk side visited St Neots and returned back down the A14 with a 4-0 victory to their credit – their best away win of the season.   Last Saturday Needham began their away match at Stratford in a play off position but with places in that top half of the table changing with each sequence of fixtures they now find themselves after a 3-1 reversal in a cluster of sides just outside the play off zone.   This is to be St Neots third trip to Needham –the previous ones being in the FA Vase competition in 2003 and 2008.   The 2003 visit was a First Round match in the competition in a season that saw one of the best runs in that competition for St Neots.  Needham were our second of our victims of that campaign having defeated local rivals Somersham Town in a Preliminary Round.   From the Needham victory (our goal scorers Steve Kuhne (2) and Ronnie Fortune) we went on to defeat Beaconsfield SYCOB on penalty kicks in a replay, and Thamesmead Town at home before losing in the fourth round to Keynsham at Bristol.   However four years later Needham went two rounds further than us before losing in the semi-final of the FA Vase to their fellow Eastern Counties League colleagues Kirkham and Wesham.   We met again in the FA Vase in 2008 at Needham Market where we were beaten 4-3.   Since then Needham lifted the ECL championship in 2009/10 to earn promotion to Step Four where they contested the play-offs in three successive seasons before winning their place at Step Three.   That was in the Isthmian pyramid, but the latest reorganisation has placed then in the Southern League Central.   John Walker
