Hello All

It seems an age since we kicked a ball in anger, had the stadium filled with people, atmosphere and noise.

The excitement, anticipation of a promotion season and the prospect of a trip to Wembley for an FA Trophy final.

We are all in a hugely different place now as the country comes to grips with the pandemic and we all try to keep ourselves as well as our loved ones safe.

At the club we are all well, players, staff, volunteers and we are doing our best to keep in touch with supporters.

My apologies that we have not been in touch sooner. We hope you, your family and staff are all safe and well.

We await decisions from The National League on the fate of the current season, will it re-commence, will it be null and void? The FA will be deciding what happens to this year’s FA competitions.

All of that football business has lost it’s relevance and whilst we look forward to the first kick off it is all about getting through the crisis intact and together.

From everyone at the club, take care, stay safe and we will see you when this is all over.
