Tisdale Says Budget's Haven't Been Cut

Tisdale Says Budget's Haven't Been Cut

Paul Tisdale has talked with a bit more depth about the financial challenges he faces, but says it's not because his budget has been cut.

Speaking to the Western Morning Gazette after announcing that four players would have to leave for financial reasons, it was also confirmed that Tisdale will have to release one of his coaches to help free up extra cash for the playing staff, but he says the budget hasn't been cut it's because the club haven't received a 'windfall' this season such as a cup run or a player sale which has helped in previous years.

'I can only spend what I have, and it's going to be a tricky couple of months. This is the first year since I have been at the club that we have not had a sale or some sort of windfall. We missed out on the play off, which would have brought a cash injection, so we will get every penny that is available on the playing side. There is no money being held back.'

Tisdale says that fans have to recognise that as investment comes from the Trust whilst it gives us stability and a long term view, it is minimum financial investment and he can't risk the future of the club too far in trying to grow us.

The disappointment is of course that with injuries and our lack of depth costing us the Play Off run this season, losing experienced players will make it harder to achieve that again next season which would've been the aim.
