Managing director Andrew Casson has released more details surrounding the change of ownership at Barrow AFC, including that of his own position, The Mail report.

It was announced on Wednesday morning that Casson’s father, Paul, would be stepping down as owner of the Bluebirds, bringing to an end his four-year reign at Holker Street. It was further revealed that director Paul Hornby would be taking on the day-to-day running of the club as interim chairman.

However, the statements released from Paul Casson and Hornby left several questions unanswered, such as the ownership of the stadium and what the hierarchy would be in the boardroom going forward.

With Hornby on holiday this week and due to return today for tonight’s question and answer session with AFC supporters in the Crossbar at Holker Street, it had appeared as if we would have to wait until then for things to be made clearer.

But in a move to prevent speculation over the club’s future building, Casson put out his own statement on their website yesterday lunchtime.

In it, he stated that tomorrow’s home game against Barnet will be the last to take place with him on the board and that Barrow will remain owners of their ground.
