31st March 2020

As widely reported all our football and non-match day conference activity effectively ceased in early March due to the present exceptional circumstances. Since that time our staff have been unable to work and we have therefore decided that rather than be forced to make widespread redundancies, we will and have furlough all club staff and players to enable us to retain them via the support of the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

As a result of this decision, which is in the best interests of the club (including its players and staff), all club activities are now in hibernation although social media and website updates will continue via our volunteer network.

Purchases from the online shop can still be made but obviously will not be processed/dispatched until the furlough period ends.

As soon as matters change, we will issue further updates, but for now we thank all our fans for their ongoing support. We hope that everyone reading this statement stays well and complies with Government advice so that we can all return to normal as soon as possible.
