Whitley Bay launch 'Just Giving' page
Whitley Bay FC have launched a ‘Just Giving’ page to enable supporters to help the club through a difficult time financially.
A statement issued by the club said: “The FA has announced the the 2019/20 season for clubs at Step 3 to Step 6, which includes the Northern League, is over. All records are expunged and there will be no promotion or relegation.
“With all games called off and the Clubhouse closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, supporters have been asking how they can help the Club through this very difficult time. With no income through the gate or bar, it is obviously difficult for clubs to pay running costs that are incurred regardless of whether games are being played.
“A ‘Just Giving’ page has been set up for fans wishing to make donations or pre-pay season tickets for 2020/21. Some have kindly offered to contribute what they woulfd have paid in gate admissions for the matches that have been called off so far.
“Donations can be made via @AntoniaBrindle #justgiving : https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/whitleybayfc
“All donations will be most gratefully received and will help the Club during this period when we are all experiencing unprecedented difficulty.”
