Tonbridge Angels manager Steve McKimm knows money will be tight in National League South

By Craig Tucker

Steve McKimm suspects Tonbridge will have the lowest budget in National League South.

Angels have been basking in the glory of promotion after winning Saturday’s super play-off at Met Police but are starting to think about next season.

It’s a huge achievement to be back in non-league football’s second tier, with Tonbridge excited about the challenges ahead.

They won’t have big money to play with but the same can be said of this season in the Bostik Premier.

McKimm said: “For the club, it’s massive to be in National South.

“You’ve got the Aldershots, Maidstones, Havants, all these supporters coming to our club and it helps the revenue and it helps keep the club afloat because we haven’t got a sugar daddy.

“The club will have one of the smallest if not the smallest budget in the league next year.

“That’s a fact, because we haven’t got people to put money in and the club has to rely on fans coming in and helping to boost the coffers.”
