Non-league: Cuss belittles budget woe as Wimborne swoop for Sainsbury
BOSS Steve Cuss insisted there had been no cause for concern over Wimborne Town’s budget after juggling his resources to bring in midfielder Aidan Sainsbury.
Chairman Paul Miller strongly refuted speculation that the Cuthbury outfit had been forced to cut funds for their non-contract players following early exits from the FA Cup and FA Trophy.
And after re-signing former Cherries apprentice Sainsbury in time for Saturday’s home match with Didcot Town (3pm), the Magpies manager claimed it was his prerogative as to how he moved his money around.
Cuss told the Daily Echo: “Nothing drastic has happened, it was just a bit of wheeling and dealing in my book. Managers always play around with their budget to accommodate what they need and free up funds to bring in players.”
On Sainsbury’s arrival, the Wimborne manager added: “We are delighted to have him back. His travel situation will be a little easier now he can come over from the Isle of Wight with Pat Wilson and he will add good competition for places.
“He is predominantly a central midfielder but is very flexible and can play anywhere across the middle.”
Jason Harvell, Scott Arnold and George Webb are all doubtful for the Didcot clash.
Magpies: (from) Ackerman, Costello, Maybury, Wilson, Brian, Blake, Davidson, Hubbard, Stokoe, Kemble, Gamble, Griffin, Arnold, Webb, Sainsbury, Burton-Hemmings, Roast, Harvell (g/k).
- In the FA Vase first round, Hamworthy United are likely to be without the unavailable Dominic Allen and Tom Biles as they host Oxford City Nomads, but Sam Lockyer may return from injury.
New signing Jordan Cotton joins returning quintet James Baker, Jacques Bernard, Sam Purdy, Connor Doe and Dan Saul for Christchurch’s tie at Moneyfields, while Verwood Town take on Laverstock & Ford at Potterne Park. Winning clubs receive £900.
