As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Workington AFC find themselves in uncertain and unpredictable times. Like numerous other clubs across the country, we cannot underestimate the massive problems we now face going forward through this prolonged period of disruption.
Ironically, this comes at a time when our inspirational team sits firmly at the top of the league. This season, we have all witnessed a remarkable turn around in our fortunes on the pitch, under the guidance of our brilliant management team, led by Danny Grainger. This has truly galvanised everyone at the club and we move forward with renewed optimism. Heralding a new brighter future in our famous club’s history as we enter our centenary year of 2021. This should be a period of celebration for us all.
But without survival, there is no future.
The board of directors have put in place timely and targeted measures to support the club during the next few weeks, but with all games now postponed and no real indication of when we will play again, our primary income streams have virtually disappeared. It appears this terrible situation, is likely to continue for many months rather than weeks, so we will quickly run out of funds.
As a result, we would like to reach out to all our fans to donate whatever you can to help safeguard our future. We estimate we will need at least £20,000 to ensure our club remains where it was before the tragic arrival of COVID-19.
When times improve and they will improve, the Reds will still be here at Borough Park, thanks to all your generous donations.
Help secure the future for the next generations of our supporters.
