New stretch target
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!!
Because you guys reached our target we've been given the chance to stretch our target. The new target seems alot but it would allow us to upgrade and repair various areas of the ground.
- we would love to repair all 3 toilet blocks around the ground, one of which is currently falling down.
- it would be great to tarmac the paths around the ground as they are currently very uneven. This would be brilliant for the older and disabled fans. They'll no longer need to worry about an uneven surface.
- we also have 3 standing stands that require some attention. this would be amazing for when the weathers not so good to stay dry and out the rain.
Thanks again, i cant tell you how much this means to me, and how much it will help this historic club. xx
Our aim is to help this 130year old club, Worthing FC update/revamp its much loved main stand and return it to its former glory for all fans to enjoy.
About the project
My name is George Dowell and I’m the new owner of Worthing FC. I used to play for the club in 2010, when I was 17. On April 13th 2010 I was front seat passenger in a road traffic accident that left me paralyzed from the chest down, and bound to a wheelchair for the rest of my life. This of course has changed my life enormously and put an end to my football career, or so I thought. In November 2014 I read an article in the paper that stated Worthing FC were in real financial trouble and just weeks away from folding all together. After asking some questions to the people at the club I thought this would be something id love to get involved with, and a great opportunity for me to get back into football in a different way. So as of March this year my takeover was complete and time to begin the new era for Worthing FC and I cant wait.
My first thing to address is the clubs Main Stand. Id love to bring it back to its former glory as it has been neglected for many years. We'd like to replace all the seats as the current ones are past there best and all together not suitable. We'll also be refurbishing and painting the structure of the stand to make it look and feel more welcoming, apposed to the current stripped back metal. There's also various repairs required.
If you could in anyway help us to get these works carried out this stand will be far and away the best stand in West Sussex bar the Amex. A real selling point for Worthing and Worthing FC.
Here is a link to the story if you want more information.
What we could afford to do with your kind pledges.

Missing seats. ^
Seats held together with screws. ^
More screws and broken.
We'd love to repair/replace the current Railings.
And finally paint the structure to make it more welcoming to everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you feel you can help us achieve this that would be great.
