The Queens Trust has had made some great Queens Trust rattles and maracas which we will be giving out free to Queens Junior Blues and Queens Trust Juniors at this weekends game.
Each junior will get to pick one. Either a rattle or a maraca, not both sorry.
Queens Trust members will be in the Arena from 2pm to hand them out before the game. So make sure and get along to the game to get your free gift and then use them to make some noise and cheer the team on!
Looking for a Queens related present? The Queens Trust still have some of the fantastic Limited Edition Signed Prints available of the posters that we have been using to promote home matches. One of the designs (with the old stand) is now also the front cover of this seasons programme.
These unique images by the artist Paine Proffitt (www.paineproffitt.com) are published as limited edition fine art prints. They are printed using the latest Giclee printing processes and each print is individually numbered and signed by the artist. There will only be a small print run of 25 for each of the three designs. The prints will not have opponents or dates mentioned.
Loose print £65 (£55 for Queens Trust members)
Framed print £95 (£85 for Queens Trust members)
Framed prints will have a white mount and a black frame. P&P (to UK) is £5 on every print ordered whether loose or framed. Prints will be delivered directly to any address provided.
These fantastic artworks can be purchased through the Queens Trust. Please email email@example.com with any orders or if you require any further information.
Queens Trust news.
Membership of the Queens Trust is now at the highest it has been in years at 215 members. A fantastic number, thank you all for your support. If you are not yet a member it’s never to late to join. Click on the ‘how to join’ link at the top of this page for more information.
The matchday poster competition that we have been running this season has been a great success with around 200 people sharing each of our posters on Facebook and Twitter. This has helped the posters to reach over 10,000 people for each game. After each game we pick a winner at random and the Queens Trust present them with a £10 voucher for the Queens club shop. So far we have had 5 winners. If you have not yet had a go please do as it is a very easy way to help promote the club and its home games and you might just be the next winner!
We have some exciting things in the planning for the Junior Blues and hope to publish news on these next month. So watch this space.
The next meeting of the Queens Trust is on Friday 7th October at 7.30pm at the Queen of the South Arena. All members are welcome to attend.

A huge thank you to all who have joined or renewed their membership in the last month. It has been amazing to see such support for the Trust.
We went well past last years total of 155 members and even managed to surpass our target of 180. Before the draw we got to a fantastic 201 Queens Trust members signed up for 2016 and 16/17 with a few still to come in. Brilliant!
Many thanks again to everyone and heres to an entertaining season ahead!
C’mon the South!
Super support for the Queens Trust from the Blue Army! We are now at 156 members meaning we have beaten last years number of 155. Now to go for our target of 180! Please help us reach our target. Don’t delay join today!
At just £10 adults and £5 all concessions it is the same price as it was 12 years ago. Just one week left to be in with the chance of winning a QOS season ticket! Join now so don’t miss out. Thank you for the great support so far.
A big thank you to everyone who has helped the Queens Trust in anyway over the last year. Whether that is by being a Trust member, making a donation, regular direct debit or by supporting our events like the recent quiz night or our 10th anniversary auction and raffle that we held or by supporting our Twitter and Facebook accounts with shares, retweets and likes etc. It all helps greatly and is very much appreciated.
Trust memberships for 2016/17 are now due. As last year there will again be the chance to win one of 5 Queens season tickets (1 adult, 2 senior and 2 junior) for all those that join by 22nd June.
The Trust membership which was high when the Trust first started and also during the Save our South campaign has been steadily increasing over the last few years and it would be great if we could continue this trend. So please spread the word and encourage anyone you know to join. It really does help to have the backing of as many fans as possible. It would be fantastic if we could get to 180 members this year so please help if you can.
2012. 59 members
2013. 72 members
2014. 112 members
2015. 155 members
