Canterbury City have released the following statement with good and bad news coming out from our Premier Division side.
“Canterbury City Football Club are pleased to announce that we have negotiated financial backing which will ensure the club’s security for the mid to long term future. In turn it provides us confirmation of being able to compete in the Southern Counties East Football League.
“After a difficult season we are sure that this will be positive news for all our players and supporters of CCFC as we continue the quest to get back to our own ground in the City. The next few weeks will see more details emerge. However at this stage, we have to plan strategically the structure and running of the club in the interests of CCFC.
“Unfortunately this good news is somewhat dampened by the fact we now find ourselves once again searching for a ground share. We have been advised by Faversham Town Football Club that they don’t wish to discuss the possibility of remaining at Salters Lane when our lease ends after completion of this season. Therefore if there are any clubs in the region who are possibly able to assist and ensure our continued presence in SCEFL, would they kindly please contact CEO/Club Secretary Richie Moore via firstname.lastname@example.org with phone calls requested after 2pm.”
City are next in action at Lordswood on Saturday in a key Premier Division game.
