Queens Trust memberships for 2017/18 are now open for joining and for renewals. As previous years there will again be the great opportunity to win one of 5 Queen of the South 17/18 season tickets (1 adult, 2 senior and 2 junior) for all those that join by 10th July 2017. So get those memberships in without delay!

The Queens Trust membership has been 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 to get to over 200 members again this year so please help if you can.

Thanks to the support of our members we were once again able to enter this years Queens shirt draw. We also have a number of ideas for next season to continue our work of promoting Queens and football in the community and of strengthening the Trust as well as supporting the club and the clubs supporters wherever we can.

Memberships can be purchased through our listing on eBay ‘Queen of the South Trust Membership’ or by paypal, direct banking, or by cheque or cash. More details on the ‘How to Join’ tab at the top of this page.

If you have any questions or queries or any suggestions or ideas please do get in touch with us at joetulip1919@hotmail.co.uk it would be great to hear from you.

The next meeting of the Queens Trust will be on Monday 10th July in the Queens Arena at 7.30pm and is open to all Trust members.
