Moors launch crowdfunder to boost ground development fund

Spennymoor fans and non-league football supporters can now contribute to a crowdfunder to aid ground developments at The Brewery Field.  

These improvements include increases to capacity, an extra 503 seats, new turnstiles, new terracing, officials’ rooms, a spectator first aid room, a new PA and CCTV system.

They are essential to allow the club to take part in the National League North playoffs, which has become a significant possibility through its excellent league performance.

Clearly, such dramatic developments will come at a significant cost to the club.  Spennymoor Town FC is proud to be embedded in the heart of the community and will endeavour to continue to be an asset for Spennymoor and County Durham.  To this end, the club is asking fans to donate anything they can to help drive these improvements.

Club Captain Chris Mason shows off the fans’ plaque on the wall at the main stand.

Today, a Crowdfunder campaign has launched online.  It will run alongside the season-long “Chuck It In The Bucket” collections on match days and all proceeds will be added to the ground development fund.  The total so far from the bucket collections stands at £914.32.

Mike Rowcroft, Head of Supporter Engagement, said: “We enjoy a great relationship with our fans, who showed the club significant support last season to refurbish our existing seats.  We’ve installed a commemorative plaque on the north side of the Ramside Estates Main Stand, which lists the name of everyone who gave to the fund.

“Firstly, I’d like to thank those who have already contributed this season through Chuck It In The Bucket, whether they be Spennymoor or visiting fans.

“The club is showing real ambition to thrive at the next level and I hope our fans, and fans of North East football in general, can give us a helping hand in achieving our goals.”
