Manager Chris Wilder and chief executive officer Stephen Bettis have agreed partial pay and relevant bonus deferrals to assist the Football Club's cash flow issues during the current Covid-19 crisis. The savings created by this will assist the Club with retaining staff and continuing to pay 100 per cent of their salaries during this difficult period.

They were joined by senior coaching staff who agreed to the deferrals for the next six months also.

Boss Wilder commented: "It is a difficult time for everyone and that includes Football Clubs and this particular measure is all about our Football Club. I've had similar experiences of cash flow problems at other Clubs and I'm delighted that my staff have supported me in assisting our Club in a small way."

Chief executive officer Bettis added: "There is a long uncertain road ahead, but we remain committed to doing everything we can to ensure the stability of this great Football Club. I'd like to thank Chris and the senior coaching staff for being united in joining me in these short-term remuneration deferrals."
