Green Light For Investment

Four Resolutions were passed at Altrincham FC’s Extraordinary General Meeting which allows the club to seek new investors via voting shares which are now available.

A show of hands from shareholders assembled at the club’s Community Sports Hall gave a unanimous green light to the move. The club converted the 51% of non-voting shares to voting shares via the resolutions to create a means to generate finance.

Chairman Grahame Rowley said: “It was great to see such a positive reaction to the motion – not one hand against. It now opens the door for the right investor or investors to get involved with this fantastic club.

“We’ve been working hard on the football side with the new manager and we’ve made some very good player signings. We’re determined to move up the leagues quickly, so a financial boost will obviously help us with our ambitions both on and off the pitch.”

The club’s board has appointed The Sport Business to help and support communications and commercial activities at the J Davidson stadium.
