It's been a whirlwind 3 weeks since the close of our Crowdfunder, with the club now in receipt of all funds raised from our appeal. We've been making news all round the country from our amazing Frome Times coverage to the i newspaper, BBC Sport, BBC Somerset and even being talked about as a model to follow on Talksport!
We wanted to again thank each and every person that donated, liked and shared our campaign and helped us raise a huge £20,235. Here's a little reminder of what happened...
We are starting to roll out the next steps of the Crowdfund process. We will be looking again to our supporters to help us find a provider of the nearly 240 name plaques to be added to the seats at the ground. We will be holding an event over the summer break to welcome all fans to the ground for the installation and unveiling of our Wall of Thanks. On this day we will also be unveiling the chosen name for the stadium next season. Over the coming weeks we will complete the draw for the lucky winner and will hoping that all our fans might be able to inspire them with a new name...
We remain indebted to every donation made, but it's the IMS donation that everyone is talking about. We will be liaising with IMS and you all about how we can turn this wonderful gesture into a landmark occasion as we look to take on the challenge of filling 'the Hill' and seeing if we can set a new attendance record for recent times.
In other club news:
We have a lot in the pipeline that will be coming out shortly from the club, so stay tuned for updates on

We got plenty still to come with player news, squad updates, stadium updates and season ticket information. But as the current season ends for football across all levels, we will share more information at the right time. Most importantly we want everyone in Frome to stay safe and well. We're itching to get back into action but only at the right time.
