In the light of recent disappointing results, the players have agreed to cancel a planned get-together following Saturday's game at Aldershot and instead pay for fans to travel to the Torquay United fixture next month.

Captain Will Evans held talks with his team-mates and it was agreed they would forego their outing. The money which would have been donated by the club for a round of drinks will be added to by cash paid by the players to fund the True Blue Travel coach to Torquay.

Commenting on the gesture, Evans said: "The recent performances haven't been good enough and we felt that we wanted to give something back to the fans to reward them for their commitment and support."

Associate director Lesley Brentnall, who arranges the True Blue Travel trips, commented: "It's never easy filling a coach for a long trip like the one to Torquay so this a very welcome gesture from the players and I'd like to thank them for doing this.

"Priority will be given to those fans who have already booked to travel to Aldershot and I will be speaking to them on the coach on Saturday."
