AFC Bentley have launched a Crowdfunder appeal to try and raise money for a new clubhouse at The Avenue.

Planning permission for the facility - which will include dressing rooms, toilets, meeting room and kitchen - was granted last October by Doncaster Council.

The club, which boasts three senior teams, an Over 35s side and 15 academy teams, hope to raise £10,000 towards the project via Crowdfunder.
