Tadcaster start crowdfunding after flood damage

Tadcaster Albion have started a crowdfunding appeal after they were hit by flooding over the weekend.

Less than 24 hours after their 3-0 home win over Spalding United in the EVO-STIK League East Division, their i2i Stadium home was under water after the River Wharfe burst its banks again.

With the club unable to obtain flood insurance after the severe floods in 2015, they have to raise any money for repairs themselves.

The crowdfunding page says: "We are now in the process of pumping away the water, undertaking a huge deep clean of the facilities and repairing the damaged fixtures. We also need to repair the tractor, lawn mowers and many other pieces of equipment used for pitch maintenance; which were all damaged from being under water. The pich itself also needs maintenance work and preparing for future fixtures.

"Your help and support in reaching our target is hugely appreciated and we offer our sincere thanks to you and the football community for your tremendous support."

Tadcaster were recently shortlisted for the Pitch of the Year, ran by league sponsors Greenfields.
