#SaveOurSeasiders campaign nears target

Prestatyn Town

Prestatyn Town

Prestatyn Town say the club needs to raise £5,000 by Thursday to avoid a winding-up order.

Seasiders’ chairman Chris Tipping told a post-match supporters meeting on Saturday evening that the club was close to reaching a final demand to settle a £53,000 tax bill.

Another meeting will be held at Bastion Gardens on Wednesday evening at 7.30pm – on the eve of the HMRC deadline.

The update followed Prestatyn’s 3-1 win over Holyhead Hotspur, which keeps the Seasiders six points clear at the top of the Huws Gray Alliance and unbeaten after thirteen games. Jordan Davies scored twice with Noah Edwards grabbing Town’s third in the 89th minute before Holyhead replied in stoppage time.

A JustGiving page set up by Prestatyn fan Rob Caton has now raised £4,275 in the past month. Next Saturday, fans are planning to walk from Flint to Bastion Gardens in a fundraising ‘March for Survival’, ahead of their next league match at home to Flint Town United. A membership scheme, offering three places on the board of directors to fans, has also been launched.

An EBay auction of sporting memorabilia is also continuing – featuring signed gloves from ex-world heavyweight boxing champion Barry McGuigan and a signed Arsenal shirt from Wales star Aaron Ramsey.
