It is with great pleasure that Hednesford Town Football Club can confirm that following confirmation of the ratification of the deal from the relevant legal and sporting authorities Graham Jones and Hayden Dando have today completed the purchase of Hednesford Town Football Club.
Both Graham and Hayden would like to place on record their thanks to the following people for their hard work and support during this process –
The team at Residential and Commercial Engineering LTD
The team at Lionheart Security Services LTD
Graham Jones’ family
Hayden Dando’s family
Steve Price & family
The Football Association
The Southern league
And all of the players, officials and supporters of Hednesford Town Football Club and everyone else involved, who have been patient, supportive and assisted in the facilitating of the acquisition.
In a joint statement Graham and Hayden said;
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to complete the deal to take over Hednesford Town Football Club, this journey began some time ago and has certainly been an interesting journey to get to this point. We cannot thank the support of all the background teams and people enough, all of which have been involved to assist this transitional period, this historical time is much as a credit to them, and we are truly grateful to each and every person.
There is much work ahead of us and of course with the current situation surrounding Covid-19 we have to work around this, as we plan ahead for the future and in particular the 2020/21 season with Andy Morrell who has already been working hard preparing for the new season. We are very excited with regards our future with the Pitmen and we are incredibly focused on achieving the goals we have set out to really maximise the potential of this football club. If things were different in the world right now we would be gearing up for a huge party this evening to celebrate, however, we will instead have to settle with a quiet drink together on a video chat to celebrate and then tomorrow we can get on with the hard work of bringing a football club that the supporters and people of Hednesford can rightly be proud of. The journey is only just beginning.”
Once the current situation surrounding Covid-19 has been resolved Graham and Hayden will be announcing a fans forum where they will be happy to meet all supporters of the football club and discuss in more detail the plans for the future for Hednesford Town, and what we are all working on in the background, but for now they had one final message “Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all getting behind the Pitmen for the 2020/2021 season ahead, as we move together land-marking 140 years as a club.”
