LEWES FC Director Patrick Marber has confirmed that a playing budget has been set for team manager Simon Wormull for next season.

He said: “For obvious reasons we can’t right now reveal the details of that playing budget but it does mean that Simon can work within the parameters of that budget when he meets and negotiates with players and hopefully we will soon her news of signings.”

Sport Express understands that Wormull has offered all of the players who finished last season with the Rooks some kind of deal to stay with the club next season, although only a “couple” of these offers involves players being under contract.

It is believed that no response had been made by players to these offers at the time of going to press yesterday, although Wormull is expecting to begin discussions with players from today.
