Consortium member Steve Sly has told the press that he hasn’t bought the club, he has just been given the chance to run it better.

Sly was speaking after the EGM, where the majority of shareholders voted in favour of the proposals put forward by Jeff Mostyn and Steve Sly.

Sly told the Daily Echo

‘I started as an 11-year-old on the old South End and having come from the terraces I know what fans want to experience.

‘Fans want reasonable prices, good access to the stadium, and they want to be treated with respect.

‘I want to improve things for the fans and that is my priority. They are the people who pay the wages.

‘I firmly believe that although we have made our investment, we are just being given the right to run the club better.

‘It is important for the fans to know we can’t buy this club as it belongs to them.

‘I am proud to be given the chance to try and change things for the better.’
