Whites owner issues plea to community
OWNER of Salisbury City FC Mark Winter has issued a rallying cry to the community to back the club and help it thrive next season.
The 47-year-old spoke to fans and potential sponsors at an open evening last night where he expressed how he wants Whites to become a “community club.”
“Anyone is welcome to get involved in the club as long as they help steer it in the right direction,” Mr Winter said.
“I want this to be a club people want to get involved with. We all want the club to move forward and we need it to be part of the community.
“Everyone agrees that’s the way forward.”
“If we can afford to run this club without a sugar daddy and run it predominantly fan-based, then that’s what we want.”
Salisbury were relegated from Conference Premier to Conference South on Friday for not settling players’ wage bills on time. They have until Friday, July 4 at 5pm to deposit a £50,000 bond and pay the £25,000 owed to the squad.
The club has also been issued a winding up order of £29,000 from HMRC to be paid by today at 5pm. Mr Winter says all outstanding debts will be paid on time.
