The club is still actively seeking an investor to replace the income lost when Glyn Hopkin pulled out, which will obviously change everything, while planning in case it doesn't happen.
Steve Thompson stated at the fans meeting on the 17th May 2018 that the decision to press on into 2018/19 had been taken after a very careful budgeting process to ensure the club had a chance to survive.
DiggerDagger understands that this budget included the MD taking a pay cut, the release of Manager, and biggest single wage at the club, John Still, and the sale of some contracted players based on estimated values for these transfers.
In addition, season ticket prices were increased for the coming season, and Full Membership of the football club has been opened, at a cost of £100 per annum. This will hopefully increase fan involvement in the club going forward as memebrship has somewhat stagnated over recent years. Membership forms can be downloaded here.
The club is also looking for donations of £150,000 to help keep the club above water. Last week donations from supporters the club's own fans and football supporters around the world had reached a promising £42,000, but more is needed to ensure the club can survive the season.
