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.”
