Staines Town chairman Joel Dixon has addressed the club’s supporters in a statement after a dismal season on the pitch.
In the Evo-Stik League South Premier Division South, Staines have won four of their 41 league matches this season, leaving them bottom by 25 points and relegated. Dixon says that he believes ‘although the coaching staff did struggle with recruitment, we felt we had given them the funds to be able to attract players of the right level to secure stability in the first year.’
With regard to the long-term future of the club, Dixon states that ‘significant resources’ are being committed to rectifying underlying issues in order to enable the club to survive. He goes on to say:
‘It is possible that we start the 2019/20 season working under the same constraints as we have finished this season. That does not mean that we will not invest in a competitive playing squad and experienced coaching staff.’
Dixon also says that one of the club’s ex-committee members has now been banned for life following an incident last Saturday against Gosport Borough. The statement can be read in full at: stainestownfootballclub.co.uk
