North Ferriby United have a new owner once again as Jamie Waltham’s often controversial time in charge of the club was brought to an end last night, report the Hull Daily Mail.
Waltham, who was only at the helm at the Villagers for just short of six months having taken over from Steve and Eman Forster, has passed the club over to Carl and Terry Chadwick of Chadwick Builders, who have acquired the ground’s naming rights as part of the deal. The move brings an end to a turbulent time in charge for former Ferriby player Waltham, who drew anger from some supporters with his efforts to relocate the club and then upset many in the village with his plans to house travellers on the pitch in an effort to generate money.
Despite his difficult time in charge Waltham insists he has no regrets taking ownership of the club and says he leaves the Villagers on a far sounder footing than when he found them, having dramatically cut an unsustainable wage bill and reduced the club losses.
Speaking to the Mail from India, where he has relocated with work, Mr Waltham said: “The forms got completed and signed yesterday transferring 100% of the shares to the new owners. I no longer own the club.
