The Club issued their statement on the official website on Monday 2nd August 2004. It read as follows:
"For financial reasons the Manager has assembled a first team squad that currently numbers twenty and has announced his intention not to play or risk any of these players in second team matches. There are some sixteen youth team players, who the Mananger intended to use at second team level. Ten of them are first year scholars and there is a limit to the number of games they are allowed to play in a season. As a result the club are unable to commit to fielding a reserve team on a regular basis and after much discussion it has been decided to withdraw from the Pontin's Holidays Combination." Club Chairman Ivor Beeks added to the Bucks Free Press Midweek "With the number of players we have got we are struggling to put a Reserve side out. It has nothing to do with investment."
The statements comes after Wanderers had originally announced their intention to remain in the Combination. The Club attended the AGM of the Combination on 15th June and had gone as far as receiving fixtures for the 2004/5 season before declaring a u-turn on their intentions.
