End of Season message from Board of Directors

4 months ago By Sebastian Parker

The Board of Directors have said the following..

The direction we set out for the club at the start of the season though difficult at times has now started to come to fruition. We end the season with a young squad that can compete in the league and we will continue to build for the future. We are presently talking to players seeking their commitment for next season and so far everyone is committed to continue on our journey. The team spirit and togetherness in a testing season has really come through and the players deserve credit on how they have handled the disappointments.

We acknowledge that Polly and his back room staff have worked tirelessly on the training field and just as important on the phone either recruiting or reassuring.

The club set out to attract promising youngsters to progress at this level and we believe we have a great foundation for the future.

Off the field the club have also made significant progress this season by reducing our dependency on financial donations. We now have in place a number of new local businesses who are sponsoring the club and we are actively looking at other opportunities that will bring additional revenue. In parallel we will continue to look at ways to reduce the clubs's operating costs.

We also stated at the beginning of the season that one of our priorities was to look at options to buy back the ground. We are pleased to advise that discussions are ongoing with Bloor Homes and of course we will keep you informed of any outcome over the next few months.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support throughout the season.

Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you all again next season.
