Taddy are currently 6th in the BetVictor Northern Premier League’s North West Division, but Storm Ciara has left the pitch under 1.6 metres of water.

Chairman Andy Charlesworth said: “We have invested thousands of pounds in the club following previous floods. We just can’t keep doing this every year.

“We can’t get flood insurance and we are now facing the potential of closure of the club. For the club to continue, help in the form of donations or materials/services in kind will be needed.

“On behalf of the club, I would like to thank everyone who has shown their support to our current plight.”

The club have used their cash reserves to repair the facility after previous floods and are not able to do so again, estimating that to fix the damage, it needs up to £42,000. There are no contingency funds left.
