Taylor calls for regionalisation

Woking chairman David Taylor has said that he is in favour of regionalisation in the Blue Square Premier.

Taylor believes that in the current financial climate the expense of long away trips may get too much for teams in the top tier of non-league football.

He told BBC Southern Counties Radio: "Clubs like ours really can't afford the overnights anymore.

"I think regionalisation has to come, Wrexham away is a huge journey for fans who want to see a game of football."

Woking's Blue Square Premier rivals Lewes reported that they are close to administration last week and Taylor said he has sympathy for everyone at The Dripping Pan.

"It's terrible for Lewes to go into administration, I feel for the club and I feel for the fans," said Taylor.

"There are also a lot of people who are owed money when a club goes into administration, let's not forget them."

Woking are preparing for the withdrawal of owner Chris Ingram's 300,000 a year investment in May 2009.
