Development Fund Update - 1st February 2017

We are pleased to announce that the Development Fund is now up to £62,048 - The DF raised £1,577 in the period between 26th January and 1st February, however this figure does not include standing orders or Holiday Fund income from the previous week, as these have yet to be reconciled, due to most standing orders being paid at the end and start of the month.

We are pleased to announce that the Development Fund is now up to £62,048. The DF raised £1,577 in the period between 26th January and 1st February, however this figure does not include standing orders or Holiday Fund income from the previous week, as these have yet to be reconciled, due to most standing orders being paid at the end and start of the month.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who has made a donation.


The Development Fund was established to allocate funds to be used specifically for the build and development of our own football ground. Between 2007 and 2016, we raised £1,139,441- a fantastic achievement that is a testament to the passion, dedication and generosity of FC United supporters. The money raised between 2007 and 2016 was used to help build and develop our new ground at Broadhurst Park.

There are still areas of the ground that need to be developed further. We have set a fundraising target for this season of £300,000 to help us specifically develop the area under the St. Mary’s Road Stand, complete the build of the two ends of the Main Stand and allow us to meet the obligations of community shares and loans from the initial build.

In the period 26th January and 1st February the money raised was:

- Development Fund Donations: (These have yet to be reconciled)
(Please note that most standing orders are received at the start and end of each month)

- DF Turnstile: £408.30 (Salford match)
- PFTG/ Barrels: £1,114.89 (Salford match)
- Stand for a Pint: £54.48 (SMRE Bar at Salford match)
- DF Fundraising Events: £ (no events in the period)
- DF Holiday Club: (These have yet to be reconciled)
TOTAL: £1,577.67

At the Salford home match £408.30 was raised through DF Turnstile No.4 (this will be assigned to the Development Fund Donations line). Fan Ming won the PFTG draw and kindly donated £100 back to the DF (this £100 is shown in the PFTG/Barrels figure). The Barrels raised £234.79

The total money raised between 1st July 2016 and 1st February 2017 is:

- Development Fund Donations: £32,345.30* (includes Salford DF Turnstile income)
- PFTG / Barrels: £13,654.89
