With the current COVID-19 pandemic shutting down the football season, the Shots are one of a huge amount of clubs taking urgent measures to try and safeguard their future.

Before the 2019/20 season suspension, Danny Searle’s team were 16th in the Vanarama National League, four points above the relegation zone with seven to play.

On the reduced salaries, the club commented: “This is to ensure that all those involved with the football club at this moment in time are doing everything we can help to the club move forward, given these difficult circumstances. This decision has also stemmed from the recent decision to suspend the EFL until the end of April and at the moment, the uncertainty on when a decision on the National League’s approach has been made as well.

“We appreciate to all those involved that this hasn’t been an easy to decision to make. This also continues with our other additional cost-cutting when we have no activity at the ground, as we look to keep pushing forward and continuously look ahead to our next game soon.”
