North Ferriby United owners Jamie Waltham and Carl Chadwick have admitted they are hopeful of a quick sale of the club, Hull Live report.
The pair have expressed their frustration at the recent Football Association ruling which has upheld the decision of the Northern Premier League to reject their plans to relocate the club to Dunswell Park and rename them East Hull.
Waltham says he still believes his plan would have been a success and brought more fans to watch the renamed team, but has finally admitted defeat in his bid to move the club and says the current owners are close to relinquishing control.
And in what many will see as a final strike against local residents and what he has continually called a poor lack of support, he says he won’t put any more money into the club and the only way they will ever be successful is by someone bank rolling them due to a lack of supporters.
“Of course there’s a bit of disappointment. I still firmly believe more people would watch that level of football in the city but it’s the FA’s competition and it’s their decision so that’s the end of it,” said Waltham in a statement issued to Hull Live.
