In an unprecedented move, members of the team, who are currently in second place in the National League, issued a statement on Thursday saying they had not been contacted by the owner or chairman to explain the situation.
Later the same day, a number of first team players gatecrashed a meeting between Mr Blower and a senior player at The Tytherington Club, where they say Mr Blower refused to speak to them as a group.
