Maidstone United have confirmed their vote to null and void the current season.

The National League South club had already made clear their preference to complete the season, if continued grant funding was available, but have explained:

“As most supporters will know, because there is an ongoing dispute with the National League and its board, we were deprived of some £100,000 of grant funding, which we should have received had the board acted according to government guidelines, as confirmed by the Independent Review Panel.

“This has created a significant shortfall of funds. It would be dangerous business practice to now try and borrow money, putting the club back into debt, possibly having to mortgage the stadium, just to play out this damaged season.

“The National League have now stated that grants are not an option. As a result, we have voted to end the season rather than carry on.”
