Hednesford Town can confirm that the club are in advanced discussions regarding the sale of the club and Keys Park Stadium.
A statement from Chairman Hayden Dando said:
I am really pleased to confirm we are at an advanced stage in discussions with an individual to purchase both Hednesford Town Football Club and Keys Park Stadium. There is only a limited amount I can say at this stage as it is not a ‘done deal’ and having had false dawns before I don’t want to get supporters hopes up however it is looking promising.
“A fee has been agreed for the stadium whilst the footballing element was always for £1 so we are now at the phase where it is in the hands of the legal teams. In terms of how long that will be it is an open ended question as different legal teams work at a different pace. However myself from the football Club, the individual who is looking to purchase and Steve Price from a stadium ownership point of view are in regular communication and as many people know I am currently in the process of returning to the UK to live, which will hopefully assist on the speed of completion.
“On a personal note I would like to thank each and every supporter and member of the community who has come through the turnstiles, brought a sponsorship package, sponsored a player and generally supported us, one of the biggest reasons we are in the position of someone interested in buying the club is because they can see the superb support this club has and the potential of Hednesford Town.
“Their plans for the club are exciting and I believe could get this club back to where it deserves to be. We were lucky enough to have two genuinely interested parties who both had the means to complete and that is in no small part down to the support this club has, in the meantime it is vital we continue to support Harry and the team by getting behind them at each game.
“I have been so proud to serve as the chairman of this football club, it has been an absolute honour to be a part of this club and I genuinely thank you all for your support and I will continue to do the best I can for you until such a time as a deal is concluded.
