Scott Priestnall met the YTFC Board on behalf of himself and Errol Pope, followed by an informal meeting with Supporters Alliance Chairman Rich Rendell and Chairman of the Glovers Trust Stuart Burrell, with new Manager Darren Sarll and Chief Operating Officer David Mills also being present.

As part of a very positive and open meeting, Mr Priestnall said the new ownership aimed to build a winning team under Darren Sarll and that fan relations would be a key focus off the field. Mr Priestnall also said he would be attending a Supporters Alliance meeting when all formalities were complete.

For their part, Mr Rendell and Mr Burrell both underlined the potential of the club and that they strongly believed fans would return in numbers if there was a winning team on the field complemented by a proactive and transparent approach off the field.

Commenting YTFC Chairman John Fry said: “Scott made a very positive impact today. It is hoped that all formalities will be completed within the next two or three weeks, but in the interim, the new owners will work with the current YTFC Board to ensure a smooth handover.”
