Squad update – Marvin Williams
The club would like to confirm that Marvin Williams has left the Whites and will be joining Eastleigh FC, after a season in which he helped the Whites to a top-ten finish.
Darrell Clarke, Manager, is sad to see Marvin leave but wishes him all the best for the future:
“I’m disappointed to be losing Marvin. When he joined us from Hemel Hempstead we helped get his career back on track, and he helped us with some great performances, but we understand that Eastleigh offered him a great deal – and that’s football.
“All of us at the club wish him all the best for the future, and thank him for his contributions while he was with the club.”
Darrell went on to talk about the club’s finances, and his aspirations for next season, saying “It’s important that we as a football club are doing things properly financially.
“Michael Cooper is working really hard with the youth & community. The reserve team is starting up next season, using players from the youth squad, trial players, and providing fitness for members of the first team who aren’t playing regularly.
“All of these are a vital part of the club’s future and will also help us financially. The Board have done a fantastic job of steadying the ship, and we’re looking to build on the work of the last few seasons and make sure we’re up there next season challenging for the top five.
“We have a fantastic Season Ticket offer at the moment, and it would be great if fans can take up the offer, helping us with the playing budget and the finances generally.
“We are lucky to have an incredible bunch of passionate, loyal fans, and we’re looking forward to rewarding them with some exciting football next season as we look to push right up the table and build on our top-ten finish this season.
“It’s going to be a busy summer for the Management, and we’ll keep our fans in the loop as much as we can. All squad developments will be on the official site so please keep checking for updates and news on what’s going on.”
