Wealdstone FC are calling on supporters to contribute £60 “in the name of their favourite Stones player” to fund player recruitment for the 2017/18 season.
The innovative new fundraising scheme will enable fans and businesses to donate a seat in the new stand for a minimum contribution of £60 in the name of their favourite player past or present as part of the celebration of the construction of the new facility at The Vale.
Fans can donate as many seats as they wish; they can also make up a team of their favourite 11 Stones Legends for just £500.
The club will provide regular updates on progress and plans for how they will capture and recognise the donations being made for all to see with this exciting fundraising initiative in the award-winning match day programme, website and club newsletter throughout the season.
Wealdstone Chairman Peter Marsden said: “I fully appreciate, and it is only right, that the lion’s share of the financial costs of keeping our famous old club ‘in the pink’ fall on the shoulders of myself and the rest of the Board.
“However, I feel it is vital that as many people as possible support this scheme particularly as this season we are going all out for promotion. These minimum £60’s can be the tipping point between us having a very good season and an outstanding one.
“Every penny will be used on player recruitment. I know in my bones that 2017-2018 season could well be a massive season for Wealdstone Football Club and in years to come I am sure we will all want to say, “I played my part”.
“I also think the idea of everyone choosing their favourite player will provoke a lot of interest and prove just how eclectic our supporters are!”
