Following a further week of difficult but progressive conversations the club would like to provide an update.
Two weeks ago we opened dialogue with a number of players and staff regarding wage deductions to support the club in these unprecedented times.
We are delighted to say that a high majority of those who entered this process have taken the decision to help safeguard the future of the club. The commitment from these players and members of the coaching staff is hugely appreciated.
In other areas of the business, the staff consultation period is in its early stages. The conclusion of the players and football staff consultation as well as the ongoing support of the fans has helped set the stage for the next steps. Nonetheless, these are difficult conversations and any decisions being made are with the long term future of the club in mind.
