Worksop Town’s new vice-chairman Max Ross has thanked everyone’s efforts as the club surpassed its £30,000 fundraising target to keep the Tigers alive.
Ross said the fundraising target set was done to “mobilise the entire club and some of the wider community”.
“Pete’s first act was, in many ways, the easiest,” said Ross.
“It was to clear some of the most pressing debts which he did by donating cash which was supplemented by £15,000 raised in 2014 by the supporters’ trust.
“The target set by Pete was to raise £30,000 by the end of February. There were doubting faces around the committee table but he was confident that it could be achieved.”
