A Norfolk football club has set up a crowdfunding page to raise £5,000 to repair the damage caused by recent storms.

Steve Gibbs, from North Walsham Town Football Club, said: “Greens Road, our home, suffered irreparable damage around the facility.

“The heavy gales took their toll on a floodlight pylon and set of lights on the youth training pitches, a supporters’ shelter was torn clean out of the ground and two of the floodlights on the main pitch lost their control mountings making them unsafe.

“This is a genuine appeal for anyone connected to the club, the wider community or anyone who cares about community-based sports provision to help us raise the money to repair the damage caused and get our home suitably fit for our football family.

“If everyone who follows us on facebook, twitter etc, donates £10 then together we will smash the target.”
