This a fantastic opportunity to not only  welcome Graham but also ask some questions... and have a cheeky pint or two.

Looking forward to seeing you all there... Spread the word.

Player of the Month December

Believe it or not, we did have other things to discuss at last nights meeting other than our manager situation ;-)

December proved to be another tough month with only one win coming away to Matlock courtesy of Shelton Payne's hat-trick, and it is mainly down to this performance that won Shelton the supporters' player of the Month award for December.

Since events unfolded over the weekend, Shelton has announced he is leaving. We would really like to thank him for lighting up many a game and we'll never forget his 5 goals in the FA Cup against Droylsden. If ever you come back to Trafford, as a player or spectator, they'll be a bottle of fizz waiting for you.
All the best Shelts!

Welcome Graham Heathcote

Well, after a mad few days , the club earlier confirmed Graham Heathcote as our new manager (after a wee bit of speculation;-).

Clearly Graham has tremendous pedigree and respect within non-league football and hopefully he can have the desired effect in turning things around. The foundations are already in place so with his experience and our support we look forward to this new chapter and hopefully some more wonderful times.

From all at Trafford FC Supporters Club, welcome to the #traffordfamily and good luck.

News update

After last night's supporters meeting, every member wanted to jointly thank Garry Vaughan and Wayne Goodison.

We can not reiterate how much we have enjoyed the last few years and how far the club has come. All the best in the future and we hope to share a pint (or two) with you both in the future.

The club will later announce the new manager and the start of a new chapter will begin. We have to get behind them and the team and kick on from the foundations set by Garry and Wayne...

A Thank You...

In the wake of yesterdays news of Garry Vaughan and Wayne Goodison leaving Trafford FC, I felt compelled to post about it.
I don't know the ins and outs of what happened and right now that is not my concern. The fact of the matter is its happened. Whilst from the outside it may not be such a shock, considering our league position, to those who follow Trafford, yesterdays announcement came as a massive surprise... it still feels very surreal!

As chairman of Trafford FC Supporters club I would just like to thank both Garry Vaughan and Wayne Goodison for their time, hardwork and efforts. We have seen some great football in the last few years and enjoyed memories that us supporters will never forget... I mean, the mighty Trafford in the Premier League... who would have thought?!

I am by no means best mates with either Garry or Wayne but I have often spoke to both and I know how much they cared about our club. Wayne was very supportive in helping us get the supporters club up and running so a massive thank you to you.

Garry, well what can I say... non-league referee's will probably enjoy the break from your constant 'advice' to them... But seriously, we enjoyed watching you wear your heart on your sleeve and the kind of football you had us playing. So thank you.

No doubt they'll be involved managing another team soon, but as a Trafford fan I hope they leave our players alone ;-) otherwise, all the best for the future guys.

As mentioned, I'm a TRAFFORD fan and I will continue to support the team. It is a difficult time for the club but we have some quality players and if we can find a manager that can build on the foundations laid by Vaughany and Goodie then I am sure we will see more success in the future. I hope the players that remain still play for the shirt and try and turn things around.

This is a new chapter in our short history, starting with 3 points in our next game please!!!!

Player of the Month - November

Well, you don't have to be Bamber Gascoigne to work out it wasn't the best November for Trafford FC. We are struggling towards the bottom of the table and without a win since... errr... BUT (the first of two buts) despite this, there have still been some decent performances. Whilst his goals haven't been rewarded with wins, they have given us fans something to cheer... So well done SHELTON PAYNE, you are the supporters player of the month for November.

As mentioned, we have been struggling as of late BUT (but number two), us supporters have faith and with players like Shelton, and the rest, all playing at their best we believe it is only a matter of time before the points come. So get playing your best, eh? ;-)

So well done Shelton and come on Trafford... BELIEVE!!!
