TADCASTER Albion have urged supporters to sign up to their ‘100 Club’ scheme as they seek funds lost by the sudden end to the football season.

Last week, the Football Association announced that all football leagues below the sixth tier would have their seasons come to an end, with the results of which being expunged. As a result, Tadcaster’s season in the Northern Premier League north/west division ended, with 11 league matches (five at home) still to be played.

Hoping to make up some of the shortfall, Albion have now set up the ‘100 Club’, which fans can join for £10 per month.

A statement on the Tadcaster website read: “Having survived the four floods earlier this year, the onset of the coronavirus has curtailed our season, effectively depriving us of 10 games, five of which would have been at the Global Stadium.

“So, on top of the financial implications of the floods, we now find ourselves without the revenue for which we had planned in respect of more than a quarter of the home matches of the season.Moreover, we still have bills for electricity, water and pitch maintenance.

“Our revenue situation is perilous but there are few opportunities to redress the balance before the start of the new season (again we cannot be sure when that will be).

“However, one way in which you can help the club is to sign up for the ‘100 Club’.

“This is a vital source of income for Tadcaster Albion, indeed at this moment, a lifeline.

“It costs £10 per month whilst providing an opportunity to take home 30 per cent of the monthly proceeds if you are the lucky winner of the draw which takes place at the end of every month.”
