Offers of support means Step 5 club can finish league season days after resignation

Just five days ago, Oadby Town announced that they have resigned from their league with immediate effect.

The club, who sat 10th out of 20th in the United Counties League Premier Division, announced on their social media that they couldn’t fulfil the nine remaining fixtures of the season due to financial trouble.

However it now has been confirmed that they have agreed to fulfil the rest of the 2018/19 season following offers of support from players, coaches and potential sponsors as well as raising some money on the JustGiving page that was set up.

Sacha Jak said, as quoted by Leicester Mercury: “There has been so much support offered that it may be possible to finish the season and then assess things again in the summer.

“I don’t want to get ahead of myself and say it is definite but I think we could be 70 or 80 percent close to a solution.

“There have been some clubs who have offered to come straight in as Oadby so we can finish the season and we are exploring our options.

“The league have been very supportive and don’t want us to fold, so they are giving us time.

“Our next home game is scheduled for March 23, when the international break is on, and it would be great to see a big crowd to help us get to the end of the season.”
