WORTHING Football Club’s majority share-holder, George Dowell, is hopeful that Rebels can raise the money required for a main stand revamp.

Dowell launched a crowdfunder initiative last month in order to try to raise £15,000 to help renovate the main stand at Woodside Road.

The current total stands at £2,027 and, with a month until the June 21 deadline, Dowell remains hopeful.

He said: “It started off really well and we managed to raise quite a big sum.

“Then it eased off a little over the past few weeks.

“Over the past few days, a little bit more has been pledged but we are still quite a way off.

“It was a sum that I thought over and I’m still hopeful of being able to raise it.”

Dowell believes that if the money is raised the stand will be unrecognisable from what it currently is.

He added: “At the moment, some of the chairs are broken and missing.

“Should we reach this figure, it will allow us to undergo a major revamp on the stand.

“There is just over a month left to go now and I am still hoping that we can reach the target as a few more people have said that they will pledge.”
