100 Club Launch | Brand New Club Fundraiser
Thanks to an initiative put together by the Club’s fundraising group, it’s time to announce the return, after many years absence, of a fabulous way for us to raise much needed funds for your Club and for you to have the chance to win some cash! If you’d like to support FOSLTC’s Development and have a chance to win some cash, please join our Monthly Draw!
For only £6 per month (per number), you can enter to get a shot at the £100 or £50 monthly prizes. You can purchase as many numbers as you’d like. Every Christmas, we’ll have a Special Draw, where the winner gets £500, the runner-up gets £100, and the third place gets £50.
The Monthly Draw will run for 36 months, starting from April 2024. To join, just set up a standing order and pay before the first draw. If you miss a payment, your number will be excluded from that month’s draw.
The 100 Club will not operate unless sufficient numbers are taken up, so please support your Club by participating.
Application Forms and Details are available online click HERE, from the office or from the bar.
The new year kicked off, literally, with a blast for Walking Football. Despite the cold weather, more than 20 players showed up on Monday afternoon to enjoy the game. The football club has also upgraded our facilities with fresh goals for both pitches, new match balls and fixed rebound boards.
Why not give walking football a go? It’s a great sport for people of all ages and abilities, and our walking footballers are a friendly bunch, always welcoming new faces! They meet: every Monday 2.00 – 3.30pm and every Wednesday evening (under floodlights) 7.00 – 8.30pm. The first week is free of charge! No need to book, just turn up!
Thursday Night is Games Night

It’s a great opportunity to meet new people and have a good time. Everyone is welcome, even if you’re not a member. Come and see for yourself, Thursday night may just become the best night of your week!
