Bromley chairman Robin Stanton-Gleaves has said that the club are ‘committed to meeting 100% of salaries for staff and players’ up until 31st May.
The 2018 FA Trophy runners-up were early leaders in this season’s National League, and with the season currently indefinitely suspended, Neil Smith’s side are six points off the play-off places. In an update provided from chairman Stanton-Gleaves, he explained: “The combination of the government lockdown and the indefinite suspension of the season by the National League has obviously left ourselves in the unprecedented situation of having almost every revenue channel available to us turned off, with the club forced to cease all operations.
“As this is the case, the club have taken the opportunity of the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to furlough employees unable to work as of 1st April. Myself and the board of directors have committed to meeting 100 percent of salaries for staff and players and to honour their contractual agreements up until the 31st May.
“We will obviously continue to review this as and when further advice and updates are received from the government. We also look forward to an update from the National League as soon as possible on how the season will be concluded.”
He goes on to add: “Myself and the board are committed to making all the necessary decisions moving forward in the best interest of our beloved football club so that we can come out the other side of this alive and ready to go again.”
