Reinvigorated “Forest Green Rovers” 1992-2010
The name-change to Stroud FC ended in 1992 and FGRSC returned to FGR to run a new club shop and supporters away travel coaches. FGRSC continued to play a pivotal role as FGR rose to play National League football, contributing funds direct to the club to assist with its meteoric rise. With the move to The New Lawn in 2006, supporters painted the stadium from top to bottom.
Two parallel supporters’ organisations 2008-2015 Supporters Club and Supporters Trust
In 2002 a company limited by shares was mooted for FGR with a minimum shareholding of £1000 proposed, beyond the reach of many supporters. A Supporters Trust was formed in 2008, alongside the Supporters Club, and in November 2009 FGRST invested £8000 in shares into FGR.
By 2010 FGR were in dire financial straights with debts of £1.5million. In the period between February and May 2010, both the Supporters Trust and the Supporters Club did their level best to raise funds for the “Keep the Green Alive” campaign.
The Current Supporters Club
Since Summer 2010, the Club’s situation stabilised with substantial investment from Ecotricity.
From a common sense point of view FGR was too small to have 2 Supporters Groups representing it and the two supporters’ groups merged in October 2015
The current organization retains the legal name of Forest Green Rovers Supporters Society Ltd, with popular name of Forest Green Rovers Supporters Club, and is constituted as an Industrial and Provident Society. We continue to invest in FGR and remain an important focal point for supporters to demonstrate their support for Forest Green Rovers Football Club.
