We are pleased to announce that the Development Fund (DF) has now raised £110,858 this Financial Year - The DF raised £3,605 in the period between 3rd May to 10th May - We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who has made a donation.

The DF 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 3rd May to 10th May the money raised was:

  • DF Donations: £1,475
  • PFTG/ Barrels: £0
  • DF Holiday Club: £880
  • DF Fundraising Initiatives/Events: £1,250


  • TOTAL: £3,605

    The total money raised between 1st July 2016 and 10th May 2017 is:

  • DF Donations: £49,771
  • PFTG / Barrels: £21,950
  • DF Holiday Club: £20,440
  • DF Fundraising Initiatives/Events: £18,697

  • TOTAL: £110,858
