Potters Bar Town have pleaded with football fans to help them raise £5,000 – which will be used to build two stands for 200 people by the end of March.
Chairman of the Isthmian League side, Peter Waller, has set up a GoFundMe page and as of the 3rd January, he has reached £725.

The GoFundMe page reads:
– Project Name: “STAND UP THE BAR”.
– Project: Potters Bar Town FC gained promotion to the Bostik League Premier Division this season, for the first time in our history. However, FA rules state we MUST add two Stands for 200 people, by 31 March 2019, OR be relegated.
– Goal: £5,000, towards our £15,000 share of the £50,000 Cost.
– When by: 31 March 2019.
– Grants: The Football Stadia Improvement Fund will then provide up to 70% funding.
– Youth Teams: Also the home to 6 Youth sides and community use.
– Personal Plea: As we have been involved at the Club for over 50 years now, our greatest achievement, gaining promotion, is being threatened by the possibility of immediate relegation. This will have a devastating effect on the Club, our Players and 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.
