Stand or Fall - the campaign to keep The Magpies in the Premier League

By Pitchside View

SPONSOR a seat to keep premier league football in Peacehaven, that's the challenge for fans of Peacehaven & Telscombe FC.

The campaign to raise funds for essential ground improvements will be launched in the clubhouse at 6pm on Wednesday, February 4.

The club needs to raise £15,000 so they can make the necessary ground improvements required to stay playing Ryman Premier League football next season.

The club is planning to erect two 50-seat stands on the north side of the ground and a seven step standing terrace on the east side of the ground. The cost to complete these works will be around £30,000 of which half is expected to be provided by The Football Foundation.

A seat sponsorship initiative will be launched at a special meeting for fans of the club on Wednesday.

Club chairman Brian Suckling said: “The clock is ticking and we need to raise £15,000 by the middle of March. Our plan is to get each of the 100 seats sponsored for £200. Each person or business which sponsors a seat will get their name on that seat for the lifetime of the stand.”

He continued: ”If we can manage to achieve sponsorship of all 100 seats, the remainder of the money will go towards the general upkeep and essential maintenance of the club.”

Suckling also went on to say: “Seat sponsorship is a great way to show your support and commitment to this football club. You can even sponsor a seat in memory of a loved one who has passed away and was a football fan. Families can buy one or more between them and they will make great presents.”

The Peacehaven chairman concluded: “If a business or individual wants to sponsor all the seats in one of the new stands, that stand will be named accordingly.”

It is vital the club is able to raise these funds and failure to do so will mean the club falling out of the Ryman Premier League.

Find out more about seat sponsorship at the special launch of the Stand or Fall campaign at 6pm on Wednesday. Complimentary soup and French bread will be provided.
