FANS have reacted positively to Wealdstone's campaign to generate £40,000 for next season's playing budget.
The well which the club has run on for more than a decade has finally run dry and last month the club launched the 100:400 scheme which aims to coax 100 fans, whether individuals or businesses, into forking out £400 each so Gordon Bartlett can strengthen his talented squad ahead of the 2009/10 campaign.
And in the two weeks since launch, the club is almost half-way to its target with 40 people pledging their financial help, despite the current economic climate.
"We've had an outstanding start to it," said club press officer Nick Dugard.
"We've had around 40 firm pledges, maybe more, and while some have paid the full amount outright, others have decided to pay it from July/August time when the season gets up and running.
"But our message is that there is still a long way to go and on Thursday we are holding a meet the manager event where Gordon and the players will be reinforcing that message."
Bartlett will address fans in the Aquarium Bar at Ruislip Social Club from 8pm with members of the first team squad also expected to make an appearance,following training.
Club chairman Howard Krais will also be present to answer questions about the fundraising drive.
