Club’s plight is there in print
THE plight surrounding the future of Worcester City has been well documented.
Having no money to build a ground at Nunnery Way after they leave St George’s Lane in June 2013 and the impending capital gains tax bill that could trigger is nothing new.
Yet, last Saturday, the club took the unusual step of issuing every supporter at the Hinckley United match with a two-page document detailing the situation.
Why? Because they fear fans don’t fully realise what the Blue Square Bet North club must overcome if it is to have a future.
Last month, I wrote an article suggesting as much, and this only serves to underline the point.
In his programme notes, director Mike Davis said: “It troubles us as a group that many supporters haven’t grasped the complexity of the situation we find ourselves in.
“If we can’t get the message across clearly and drum up support from the hundreds of people who call themselves supporters, our club has no future.”
There you have it, in black and white.
The hand-out also called on fans to get involved with raising vital funds and outlined the efforts being made to safeguard the future, such as the youth structure in place to provide player progression into the first team.
Hopefully, the majority of the supporters at the game read the document but, if you haven’t, I suggest you get it out of your coat pocket or bin and do so. You might be surprised.
