Neal Ardley has praised the “immense” contribution from supporters to the club’s success through our funding and he said that any more help would be greatly appreciated.

We last week relaunched the campaign to boost our manager’s playing budget – and you can do your bit to make us more competitive in League One next season.

“Every penny that they have brought in has been massive for us,” said Neal. “Without it, we would not have had players like Bayo Akinfenwa, Lyle Taylor and Tom Elliott, who took us to the wonderful heights at Wembley. This season our league is going to be even tougher than last season with big clubs coming up and down. I am pretty sure that mid-table in the budget league will be £600,000-£700,000 above where we are. You can see how competitive it is going to be and every penny that these supporters have put in has been immense to us. It will continue to help this club go where it wants to go.”
