Manager Neal Ardley has said that every pound helps as he bids to sign at least four players to the club in his summer rebuild of the playing squad.
Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer was once again full of appreciation for the generous donations of fans to our playing budget, especially as lifelong Mike Richardson has pledged to match every pound up to a certain limit to help our cause, and having signed five players already this summer, Ardley knows it's helping to make that difference.
'There's still a way to go because we want to bring probably another four in. This includes a young player because we've scouted a few that we want to take a look at in pre season. The other three will be strong first team players. Putting these players together is one thing, but getting them to fit and win games is another and that's something we need to work on in pre season.'
Ardley goes on to say that when he spoke to the fans at the We Are Wimbledon Fund even at the end of the last campaign he explained that every deal he tried to get over the line involved the player or agent asking for an extra £50-£100 on the contract and that become something that he could guarantee would happen every time, and of course sums like that soon mount up when you have a tight budget.
'Last season I spent large periods trying to save on some positions so that I'd be able to put money into other areas that I thought were key for us. Sometimes the team and the squad can suffer from that. This season if we can get the really important positions right and keep the other areas strong then hopefully that consistency will come. Sometimes this costs a little bit more money to go with all the hard work that our scouts and recruitment team do.'
With Neal already bringing in Sean Rigg, Dannie Bulman, Matt Tubbs, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Mark Phillips, the donations from fans are already helping to give him that wriggle room he didn't have last season.
