NEWS: Further update from Steve Allinson

Steve Allinson issues further update on club ownership

I have been very humbled by all the messages and pledges of support from so many people from all parts of the game since we shared the position of the Club, and the need to find new owners to move us forward.

These messages have been too numerous to reply individually, but each and every one is very much appreciated and show that what we have been trying to do has a place in the women’s game and beyond.

I am very pleased to confirm that I am in discussions with one particular party who has expressed a very serious intention to take the ownership forward and build the Club so we can continue our mission to provide top quality football for girls in the South West. The prospective owner has a track record of doing that already in other high level clubs and I am sure will bring huge enthusiasm and commitment . We are already talking about opportunities further afield too.

Clearly, any deal must be finalised legally but it is hoped that can take place as early as next week. We shall still require all the wonderful support we have seen over the years from everyone who cares passionately for this Club, so please keep spreading the word.

I hope to be able to share more information next week.
