A statement from the Division One East club reads: The current national crisis will impact, on this and many other clubs, greatly, going forward.

 

However, prior to this the club has struggled largely due to the extremely inclement conditions endured this season meaning many Saturday fixtures were necessarily cancelled and rescheduled for midweek which has impacted severely on the club’s financial position.

 

An average 100-130 Saturday attendance is much reduced on a Tuesday evening to around 40-70 resulting in costs exceeding income and while this could have been overcome the way is no longer clear going forward.

 

The football club relies heavily on sponsorship, fundraising and match attendances. as the economy begins its recovery, which is a while away yet, there is no realistic chance of any substantial sponsorship and it may be many months before fundraising events can be held. With this in mind there is simply no way forward for the football club at Step 6 level.

 

With no clear way to generate meaningful funds we had little choice other than to terminate our Hellenic League membership by the 31st March deadline and re-apply to join the Thames Valley Premier League.

 

We would like to thank the Hellenic League and its officers for the opportunity afforded this season and we wish the league and its member clubs every success for the future.
