SALISBURY City Football Club have set themselves a target of raising £100,000 in the next two weeks so that they can maintain their position at the top level of Non League football.

Under a series of initiatives supporters and the local business community will be asked to play their part.

Supporters will be able to assist by collecting donations from their friends and business colleagues, and also by bringing new football-watchers along to home games, whilst the club's existing business partners will each be asked to raise £1,000, sourced from their suppliers and other contacts.

Chairman Neville Beal, who will speak to home fans on Saturday at the match against Mansfield Town, said: "Our supporters will learn the full details of how these initiatives will be put into practice at Saturday's match.

"I am confident that we can achieve our target especially as interest has already been shown in the schemes, which were also given overwhelming approval at a recent Supporters Club meeting."
