KELVIN THOMAS SAYS THE CLUB ARE PLANNING FOR A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT SCENARIOS

Chairman Kelvin Thomas says the club are working on a number of financial models depending on what the future may hold.

With some uncertainty on when supporters might be allowed back in to stadiums, the Chairman said the club are planning for a number of different scenarios.

"We have been really busy since this situation started," he said.

"Normally we would do one budget at this time of year for the next season but currently we are working on three of four budgets depending on different scenarios and what might happen. But away from the finances, the club also remains really active in the local community, working alongside the Community Trust and that is really important.

"We honestly don't know what will happen with the League 2 season. I feel for EFL Chairman Rick Parry because he is in a really tough position with some very difficult decisions to be made. I think we need to be careful to not pre-judge and speculate too much ahead of the Government's address to the nation on Sunday, we need to wait and see what that says.

"We need to be patient, see where we are and look at the options but as time ticks by I do think it becomes harder for us to resume this season, but we do want to play the season to a finish. I spoke to the senior players on Friday and all of the squad on Monday and the mood is that we want to get going as soon as the restrictions are lifted. The squad feel like they have a job to do and finish the season and that is our mind set, we want to finish the season and do that in the safest way possible."
