I know that we've had a lot going on over the last month or so, and we are still waiting to see how things will work our on the pitch, but elsewhere I've been amazed to see the progess of the raising of money to get the required upgrade of the ground sorted. Whilst there seems to be some hope that we are back on track on the pitch, it's heartening to see that the raise the roof fund requires less than £18,000 in the next month and a half. Whether or not we are able to get back into a playoff position for the end of the season, it will be great to know that this will not be thwarted by our lack of ground facilities like last year. Earlier in the year we looked to be a million miles from being able to achieve this but it now looks more than doable.

Fantastic achievement. It would have been great to reach the target by the end of November and got the cladding ordered erected and seats in place for the York game.

Come on let's make this happen.

We're a laughing stock you know rattling our buckets.

I'll be honest - I thought we'd get nowhere near raising the amount. To need less than 18k with 6 weeks or so to raise it is a staggering effort :clap:

2 different people have chucked in over 5k in the last few days. Now that's what investment means.

Another 1000 put in. Now down to 11,495 looking like this may be raised by the end of the month.

If all who attend on Saturday stick a tenner in the bucket we will be there.

Let's get it over the line.
