The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for thousands of football clubs and we are no different. It is going to make it very challenging for clubs to survive.
Yate Town have been the top non-league Semi-Professional football club in this area proudly representing the people of Yate & Chipping Sodbury for over 80 years, firstly at Sunnyside Lane then at Lodge Road since 1984.
After last season's wonderful promotion we are back playing at the highest standard ever in the club's history, and as result of the Southern Leagues decision to terminate the current season we have, unexpectedly, early confirmation that the club has successfully retained its Southern Premier League status for next season.
We understood that the step up was never going to be easy and huge credit goes to Polly, his backroom staff and all the players.
We also wish to express the clubs gratitude to our main sponsor Orchard Computers and all our other corporate partners.
Due to the enforced closure of the club house and the complete lack of all match day revenue our main income steams were completely turned off overnight and with ongoing running costs this has placed the club in an extremely difficult financial position.
Like other semi professional clubs around the country, who have appealed to their supporters for donations, and have decided to start this Crowdfunder appeal to help the football club and we would be very grateful for ANY help during this difficult and uncertain time.
******** For every £15 donation we will be giving away a free match day ticket to a select game next season to a front line worker. They have all worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to keep this country going and we are forever grateful ********
