NEASDEN Foundation are facing the prospect of being made homeless after a severe shortfall in sponsorship cash left the club unable to pay the rent.

The Combined Counties League club owe money to landlords Bedfont for use of the Viking ground in Greenford - and are struggling to pay after discovering that funding from their sponsors had fallen short.

They are due to play a home match against Warlingham this Saturday, but the fixture is now in doubt and chairman Cecil Stanley is due to hold talks with league officials in the next couple of days.

He said: "This has left a major hole in the budget. If we don't come up with the funding, we won't be able to play football at our home ground any more."

Foundation, who were promoted to Combined Counties League Division One last season, are currently well-placed for another promotion push, lying 10th with games in hand on all the teams above them.

Any potential sponsors willing to help Foundation should contact Cecil Stanley on 07908 214 464.
