POT­TERS BAR TOWN have set up a fundrais­ing cam­paign to help them avoid au­to­matic rel­e­ga­tion due to ground re­quire­ments.

The Bostik Premier club have been en­joy­ing their first ever sea­son at Step 3 af­ter win­ning pro­mo­tion last year, but now face in­stant de­mo­tion should they not build two new stands ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing 200 fans by March 31.

The club have set up a Go-Fund me page, which aims to bring in £5000 in do­na­tions to con­trib­ute to the es­sen­tial ground up­grad­ing work.

The Foot­ball Sta­dia Im­prove­ment Fund, who helped the club with the building of new chang­ing fa­cil­i­ties and club­house will pro­vide up to 70 per cent fund­ing, but the club must pro­vide their share too.

Chair­man Peter Waller said: “Our great­est achieve­ment in my 50 years with the club was gain­ing pro­mo­tion.

“That is be­ing threat­ened by the pos­si­bil­ity of im­me­di­ate rel­e­ga­tion. This will have a dev­as­tat­ing ef­fect on the club, our play­ers, sup­port­ers and the town. “Today, as a com­mu­nity club, it is not just about foot­ball, we all con­trib­ute to the good health and com­fort of those watch­ing. “We are do­ing ev­ery­thing to raise funds, but as time is so short, we need to ask for help. “Please sup­port us if you can and thank you.”
