Chelmsford City have issued a statement to supporters to reassure them that takeover talks are “progressing”.
The Vanarama National League South playoff finalists, who lost out to Ebbsfleet in the promotion match, are looking for fresh investment.
A deal with the Jade Group collapsed at the end of the season and the Clarets need new people on board.
Their statement indicates that there is still hurdles to jump but the situation seems more positive at Melbourne Stadium.
“Peter Webb, Paul Hopkins, Mansell Wallace and the Board of Directors met with John Holmes and Steve Shore, the Managing Director of Betsi Limited, on Tuesday to discuss how things are progressing with the latter’s proposed involvement with the club,” Chelmsford said.
“Matters are indeed progressing although there is still a lot of work needed before the new structure can be put in place and all parties remain committed to delivering a positive outcome.
“As well as a development strategy various items to current operational matters were also discussed.
“Rod Stringer remains fully onside and is pushing on with the important task of searching out new signings to add to the players from last season who will be retained.”
