Scunthorpe United is delighted to confirm that contracts have been exchanged, as planned, for the ongoing purchase of Glanford Park.
The Board of Directors have been working tirelessly behind the scenes, having secured the immediate future of the club in October, with discussions progressing positively since the club’s last statement to meet the target of mid-November.
The club anticipate that completion will be towards the back end of November.
An update directly from the Board…
As a Board of Directors, we are ecstatic to announce that we have exchanged contracts for the purchase of Glanford Park.
The monumental effort from all involved, both in this process, and to keep the club running on a day-to-day basis, has not gone unnoticed, and we express our unwavering gratitude for the support which has been a driving force behind these positive outcomes.
As said previously though, this is when the hard work truly does start. The club has overcome a number of obstacles, bumps in the road, and issues surrounding our future, but we now need the ongoing support of all of our supporters, local businesses and the community to make this a success and get this great club firmly back on track.
Over the past couple of months, we have seen how much this football club means to everyone. It is integral to the town, and everyone had rallied round to ensure we have a future. This needs to continue. Whether it’s attending games, purchasing from the shop, signing up to our lottery, or supporting the club in another way, every little bit of backing is pivotal for our future.
We extend that level of importance to local businesses, and the local community. In the coming weeks and months, we will be actively engaging with a number of local businesses. We want as many to be part of our plans as possible, and urge any that are interested in showing a level of support, big or small, to get in touch with us.
Moving forward, our focus is to continue to tackle our extreme levels of debt that have been inherited. Good progress has been made to conquer a number of these, but we need support from everyone to continue moving in the right direction.
As a Board of Directors, we acknowledge there is work yet to be done, but we remain confident in the positive trajectory set in motion. We extend our thanks, once more, to all those that have played a role in this milestone achievement.
We’ve said it before. This is your club. Let’s make sure our future is bright.
