Tonbridge Angels manager Tommy Warrilow will have to trim his squad
By Craig Tucker
Tonbridge manager Tommy Warrilow has been told to release two
players to ease pressure on the club’s finances.
Warrilow (pictured) met chairman Steve Churcher for talks on
Tuesday night and will decide over the next week or so who to let
The Angels boss, whose Blue Square Bet South play-off hopefuls
visit AFC Hornchurch on Saturday, said: "We’ve not had many home
games lately, crowds haven’t been as good as we’d hoped and we’ve
held a couple of functions that haven’t been brilliantly supported
so we need to trim the squad by a couple of players.
"I don’t want to lose anyone and it isn’t ideal but the most
important thing is the football club and we need to ease the burden
a little bit.
"Whoever I release will know it’s purely down to money and not
because I don’t think they’re good enough."
Meanwhile, Warrilow is considering loan options for Mikel
Suarez. The fit-again striker has defied expectations by returning
to training only three months after a clash of heads with team-mate
Lee Browning left him in intensive care.
Warrilow said: "I didn’t know what to expect when he came back
but he’s just like he was before his accident. He’s joined in the
games at training and is even heading the ball."
He added: "I’ll approach a couple of managers of clubs in his
area (Surrey) where I’ll know he’ll get looked after. If I have no
luck, I’ll circulate his name."
