The statement, given to Kent Online, states that the team have been paid on time just once in the past year. They say that pension payments have not been met and there has been no payment of wages for January.
This week it was reported that manager Garry Hill and managing director Dave Archer had agreed already on budgets for next season.
The players’ statement begins as follows:
“Subject to the continued misleading statements of recent months giving the impression that the football club is financially secure, we can confirm as players we have only been paid on time once in the last 12 months.
“We are still outstanding our January’s salary that is now seven days late and running into the next calendar month.
“We as players are incredibly disappointed with the clubs continuation of releasing press statements that give an incorrect impression of the state of the football club.
“The football club were unable to make the players medical insurance premium which they are contractually obliged to do.
“The football club consciously withheld this information from the players resulting in the players playing three matches in the national league without cover.”
