FC United of Manchester have confirmed that their entire board have offered to resign after calling an Extraordinary General Meeting and releasing a statement recognising the unrest at the club.
FC United, the club set up by supporters after the Glazer family’s takeover at Manchester United, are mid-table in the National League North and are about to complete their first season at step two in the non-league pyramid.
This season also marks their first at their new Broadhurst Park stadium and the club have managed to attract some impressive crowds throughout the campaign, despite rumours of unrest behind the scenes.
The statement, reported by the Guardian, said “The board has unanimously agreed that it is in the best interests of the club to call an Extraordinary General Meeting as soon as is possible.
“At the EGM, all remaining board members will either stand down permanently or stand down and seek re-election. The EGM will elect a new board for the club.
“This will provide members with the opportunity to vote for a newly formed board with a fresh mandate to represent the club’s best interests and best serve the club going forward.”
