The Board have confirmed that talks with Allerdale Borough Council regarding the future of Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division club Workington AFC, including the possible option presented by former chairman Dale Brotherton, are ongoing.
As part of a Business Plan, the club have nurtured the `Reds Development Fund` group, increased advertising and sponsorship and are currently in the process of undertaking the major new initiative of `Reds in the Community`, all in the hope of providing a stable business platform to support a successful Workington Football Club.
It is incumbent upon the Board it considers all options, including Brotherton’s offer, with a view to consolidating the long-term future of the club. However, it is important that they have time to bring discussions with Allerdale to a conclusion and, when they are in a position to do so, will provide the shareholders with the options available to move the club forward.
The club ask supporters for patience in this matter as it needs to make the best decision for the long-term future of the club.
Whatever the outcome, the decision must be based on the sustainability of Workington AFC in the long-term and cannot be rushed without all options being presented for consideration.
