Further to the statement issued by The National League yesterday, we can confirm that we are supporting 'Option 3' - a suspension to The National League 2020/21 season.
We are not prepared to put the long term financial viability of the club at risk by burdening it with loans, and we believe that 'Option 2' is merely a loan in disguise.
By suspending the season for 6-8 weeks, it gives The National League time to pursue the funding matter further without the club incurring further costs.
We, of course, would rather be playing football but without spectators it is not financially viable to continue and we are not prepared to put the hard work of recent years and the future of the club at risk to do so.
We are calling on the MP for Slough, Tan Dhesi to lobby the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport to review their proposals on our behalf.
