Please find below a copy of the letter from the Chairman to the Supporters Club for those that couldn’t make the AGM. As you will be aware the new manager is now in place and working hard on building his squad for the new season. COYR!

On behalf of the board and myself I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your fundraising efforts and contributions to the playing budget over the past season. I believe I managed to speak to many of you personally at the award presentation but appreciate not everyone could make it.
The last season was very testing financially, we set a budget which we believed was realistic and unfortunately the commercial revenue we anticipated did not materialise – we are attempting to address this with the appointment of Scott Fitzgibbon in a commercial marketing and partnership role.
There is no doubt the forthcoming season will also be tough and your support will no doubt be needed again. The alternative is to settle for scraping the barrel and battling relegation every year which I am sure no supporter would want to see.
There are many exciting things in the pipeline, which may or may not happen and we are unable to disclose at present but as soon as we can we will make information available and we hope, by the time you read this, to have appointed a new manager to replace Josh Jeffries.
Last season was our second highest points total in the Southern Premier League, with your financial support we can continue to build on this.
