The players have not been paid for two months and said that they have "no confidence their wages will be paid on time, if at all" and that "having exhausted all other options, we feel we have been left with no alternative but to seek legal advice and take action in order to gain payment of wages for the last two months. We are concerned that, despite the obvious financial difficulties, the club are continuing to sign new players even though there is an inability to pay existing or former players what they are contractually owed. We are encouraged and extremely grateful for the continued support from supporters of the club and other clubs, but unfortunately well wishes do not pay our mortgages or feed our children."
