It is strange how things work out sometimes.

I laid out the letters’ pages earlier this week and had chosen correspondence from a Tigers’ fan calling for local people to get behind the team as this week’s lead letter.

Then, on Wednesday night this particular letter took on even greater resonance when news started to break that Worksop Town chairman Jason Clark had left the club, and the future for the club was looking decidedly bleak.

Clark has done a lot for the club, but now he has gone someone else is needed to step up to the plate, and quickly.

As I write this there is a very real danger that there will be no Worksop Town next season.

This would be a disaster, not only for the fans, but the town as a whole.

We are proudly home to one of the oldest football clubs in the world, with a rich history spanning more than 150 years.

The club cannot be allowed to die.

At the heart of this is the club’s need for a new home. This issue in recent years has become a bit of a political football, and local politicians now need to step up and make sure they play a part in safeguarding the future of Worksop town FC.
