With over 25 years since the club's last promotion, a whole generation of our supporters have not witnessed a step up the leagues. Our cup heroics in the 90's & 00's being the closest that many have come to celebrating success.
But with just under half the season remaining, Micky Mellon's team are well placed in the battle for promotion, in what is turning out to be a tight race, with a number of teams competing for the top spot. Success or failure will be determined as much by the consistency that each team can achieve as their outright quality. Whilst of course luck will play a major large part.
It's therefore critical that we're able to strengthen in key positions if injuries arise, or simply to bring in quality additions to make a real difference to our promotion charge. That's why the Trust and TROSC came together to raise funds for the squad, to help to bring success back to the Wirral.
The aim is to raise £30k by 17 February and we are calling on all fans to help get us over the line, so far we have raised over £6,500.
We have some great rewards on offer.
Monies at this stage only have to be a pledge, once we hit over £30k will your money be taken. Every donation is welcome, whether it is £1 or £100 it all counts.
We are planning two events, one around the Bromley game on 11 February and the other in London on 17 February, details will be provided in the coming weeks.
From now on we will be switching to the Crowdfunder site where you can keep an eye on how we are progressing towards our target, we are also looking to as many fans as possible to circulate details to others.
Other clubs who have raised monies for similiar projects e.g. Grimsby and Lincoln have had a great response. Lets get behind Micky Mellons Budget Boost and achieve promotion.
