The most important part of the season for squad building is the summer transfer window.
This means making the biggest budget possible available to Sam Ricketts and his staff in the next 4 weeks to finalise our squad with the players who can score the goals to complement the meanest defence in the National League. Our aim is to raise as much as possible by Friday 15th June 2018 so the money is available this transfer window!
Build The Budget is one of the ways, as owners of the club, we all can invest in the team to give us the very best chance of capturing the strikers we are targeting and achieving what we all want next season.
With this in mind the WST is putting its money where its mouth is and helping to kick off the campaign with a £12,000 injection into the Build The Budget fund.
Remember any funds in the BTB can ONLY be used for first team squad building and is ‘ON TOP OF’ the budget made available by the Football Club for the first team budget.
Manager Sam Ricketts said: "I’ve made my priorities clear since I joined the club that it is goal scorers that we need to improve our chances next season.
"Build The Budget is a fabulous initiative from you, the owners of your club, to invest in helping me bring in the players that will get us the goals to make next season an entertaining and successful one".
Members unanimously voted for us to continue with BTB in 2018/19 and therefore if you can afford it and you want to invest in the strikers to get us off our seats next season how can you do it?

New lead of the Build The Budget team Mark Jones WST Trust Director said: "We are extremely grateful that the WST is backing the campaign and the big cash injection gives us a massive head start on the next 4 weeks as we aim to fundraise as much as possible by 15th June.
"By the kick off last season we had raised an incredible £50,000 and our aim is to try and match that total. Look out for further announcements shortly on events that you can get behind to raise money for BTB".
