Prior to kick-off at yesterday's match against Swindon Town, the achievements of both Steve Flack and Jonathan Forte were celebrated.
An inscribed silver salver was presented by Nick Hawker, Supporters' Trust Chairman to Steve Flack as scorer of the very first goal under Supporters' Trust ownership against Halifax Town on August 9, 2003.
15 years later, on Saturday, September 22 2018, Jonathan Forte had the honour of scoring the 1000th goal under Trust ownership, rounding-off a 3-1 win over Cheltenham Town. It fell to Steve Flack to present Jonathan with his own silver salver commemorating that moment.
Thank you to all the businesses that supported the 1000th goal campaign with sponsorship. The money has been used for camera equipment for the Media and Marketing team.
