The statement on the Merstham website is interesting.

No disrespect intended to them but the bottom line is that he felt that he couldn't "expect" their directors to pay more money for a squad to take them to another promotion. By implication it means that K's must be giving him a budget that he thinks gives him a chance to do that otherwise why move from a club he seemed very happy with? He seems to leave on good terms (popping into their bar next week to say goodbye).

Merstham's attendances are lower than ours but I'm not sure that 112 higher average at K's (based on FWP) when compared to not owning your own ground (I assume Merstham do given how long they have played there) can account for the difference in the players budget available.

With the Dynan spending last Summer it can only mean that someone (perhaps the new director?) is willing to fund the attempt once again. I think this is a financially cautious board that doesn't want to repeat the 2001-2004 period so they must have the funding guaranteed and all the other loans according to our accounts seem to not be repayable on demand (no term attached).
