Wealdstone say that they will be looking to field a team for the rest of the campaign containing loan players and others with potential to be involved next season.

The National League club have reiterated the considerable difficulties in staying competitive with the continued absence of matchday revenue.

Stones announced at the end of September that the club would no longer have paid staff, besides players and management.

As part of an update to supporters, it is explained: “With regards to completing the current season, we will be taking some further measures to reduce costs. However, we believe that it is important to maintain the integrity of the league and the club despite the chaotic and hugely damaging approach to funding that has evolved.

“We believe that the government’s furlough scheme should be used appropriately to reflect the fact that we cannot maintain a full squad of National League players with virtually no revenue. Despite the disappointing result and performance at Weymouth this weekend, we intend to field sides that have the ability and attitude to compete at this level.

“As part of this approach, we are likely to include some loan players and players who have the potential to form part of our plans for next season.”
