Salisbury vow to fight on

Blue Square Premier club Salisbury City released a statement ahead of Tuesday's pre-season friendly against Coca-Cola League Two neighbours AFC Bournmeouth, claiming the club will 'fight on'.

The Wiltshire club have suffered with financial problems over recent months and the club has been up for sale since April for £1.

The statement read: “Salisbury City FC is still in talks with third parties to ensure the continuation of Blue Square Premier League football at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium in the coming season. We are doing everything possible to continue to build on the success of the past three years.

“In common with many other clubs in the league, Salisbury City has suffered financial pressures due to the current economic downturn. We made this clear at an early stage and although many gave generously at the time, the sum raised was insufficient to solve all the problems.

“We would stress that we continue to be optimistic about the future for Salisbury City FC, but we need everyone to get behind the Club at this time.

“We fight on.”

With the ongoing off-the-field problems, manager Nick Holmes has passed on the first-team management duties to Tommy Widdrington.
