A POWYS football club has launched online crowdfunder appeal in a bid to raise the cash to invest in facilities.

Radnor Valley have launched an appeal with the club hopeful of raising enough money to progress several ground improvement projects to secure promotion from MMP Central Wales League South to the Ardal North East League.

Radnor Valley have raised more than £7,000 of their £8,000 target with a month to go of their appeal including a £2,400 donation from Sport Wales from its A Place for Sport fund.

A club spokesman said: "We have four weeks to raise essential funds to improve our facilities at Radnor Valley FC.

"We are crowdfunding because we need to improve our off field facilities in order to gain promotion into Tier three.

County Times:

"Three years ago we were asked to vacate our old ground due to our old landlord not wanting us to improve and extend the facilities to gain this promotion.

"We were kindly offered our existing ground by the Phillips family and are now allowed to progress and do the changes that are needed.

"We are crowdfunding to install the first 50 seated stand which is required by the FAW. This will also massively benefit our more senior supporters as it will give them more comfort being able to sit down and watch a game.

"Once we have got the off field facilities improved we can offer the ground to other local organisations that may need a large outdoor space and be able to provide shelter in the stand and also hygienic facilities once the changing rooms have been converted."

The club is offering a sponsored seat in their planned stand for all £50 donations which has already seen more than 40 takers while five businesses have donated £250 for an sponsorship board.
