A spokesperson from the club said: "What if everyone gave one weeks subs where a game has been called off or had no fixture at the weekend?

"To anyone who plays or has played for Burnham United AFC and Burnham Juniors over the years.

"A quick bit of maths average subs for a game let’s call it £5, £5 x 200 (number of juniors in the club approximately) = £1000.

"This just shows how a lot of people giving a smaller amount can make a huge difference!"

The clubhouse roof is in desperate need being replaced, the current roof is leaking and we have been told that it is beyond repair and will have to be replaced.

The club has had the quoted cost of the new roof of £35,000.

The clubhouse is used by the local community not just for football, but it also the base for Burnham on Sea Hockey club, several skittles teams and a local darts team.

The club added: "If you have ever played for Burnham United AFC or have children involved with the club.
