Here is the content of the press release from the Clubs Official Web Site:

Firstly we would like to personally thank all the fans for their patience and understanding while the process of guiding the club out of Administration and towards a bright new future continues.

We would have loved to have been shouting from the rooftops that good news was imminent but until we had observed all the protocol and satisfied the Administrator of our intent, we have kept a low profile.

We are making good progress with our proposals to the Football League for the transfer of the golden share. Hopefully the final draft will be available this week for submission.

Steve and I will remain as Vice Chairman and Chairman respectively and we will both continue to play a vital part in the club's new future.

In addition, we have appointed Alistair Saverimutto as Chief Executive who will assume operational control of the football club moving forward. He brings a wealth of experience having been involved in sport for over eighteen years, five of which in football administration including Head of Commercial Operations at Everton FC.

Kevin Bond, his coaching staff, players, and of course the fans, almost achieved the impossible last season and it was that 'Dunkirk spirit' that we witnessed in the final third of the season that we must take into the forthcoming campaign.

Finally, we do not underestimate the task that we are taking on but we have the resources and the will to see it through - Up the Cherries.

Jeff Mostyn
