Wealdstone have said the club are grateful for the financial support package that has been distributed to National League clubs.
Although the Stones are back in the National League this season following promotion under Dean Brennan, the wider struggles in the game have certainly affected the club.
In late-September, it was announced that the club would no longer have paid staff, besides players and management.
Back in August, the club said it would need to issue further shares as it steps up to the National League, in order to ‘ensure the club remains solvent’ and doesn’t breach league financial rules.
As part of a statement today on the National Lottery grant, Wealdstone have said: “The funding we will receive helps to mitigate the impact of our current operating restrictions. However, we must continue to manage our finances with prudence and work on maximising the revenues that are available to us to protect our financial stability.
“We will continue to try and strike the important balance between supporting Dean and Stuart to put out a side we can all be proud of and ensuring the club exists in a healthy state for future years. This is a lifeline rather than a windfall and one for which we’re very grateful.”
