Grantham Town have this week made a fresh appeal for supporters and potential sponsors to get behind the club as they seek to retain their Northern Premier Division status.
The club’s board of directors are looking for help to see them through a difficult financial period with poor weather and five away games in seven league fixtures threatening to test the club’s cash flow.
Chairman Pete Railton admitted that commitment to expenditure in the first half of the season had exacerbated the situation. He said: “We recognise that we were living above our means and we have worked with the management team to bring this in line with our income levels. But we face a difficult January and February. We are taking steps to raise more income from the Supporters’ Club Lottery and to recruit a commercial manager, but these are medium term projects.
“Our plea to our fans and potential or existing sponsors is can you help ease this situation? If anyone can assist the club to get through the next six weeks when cash will be tight, then please contact us.”
