Chesterfield company secretary Ashley Carson has said he feels that progress has been made with the CFC Community Trust’s proposed takeover of the club.
A deal was agreed in principle at the end of last year for the Trust to take over from Dave Allen, but for reasons including the current pandemic, it has not yet been able to reach completion. In his latest update to supporters, Carson said:
“We still receive interest and another ‘tyre kicker’ bites the dust this week. However, I can’t fault the Community Trust and Mike Goodwin’s desire and relentless persistence to take over.
“After quite a few twists and turns, I do feel that progress has been made again. I think my forecasts on a completion date are proving to be a jinx and so all I will say is that nothing is dead in the water – keep the faith!
“Your club needs to go to the right custodians going forward.”
