THE takeover of Northwich Vics is just millimetres away from completion.
Jim Rushe spent yesterday morning at HM Revenue and Customs’ offices in Liverpool going through last-minute details.
He said: “What we’ve been waiting for since then is for Mike Connett to get his side of things sorted so the share can be transferred from Northwich Victoria Football Club (2004) Limited to us. But that's not happened as quickly as we would have liked.”
Now he is confident the club will belong to him and his consortium in time for the weekend’s clash with Oxford United. His first task once the takeover is complete will be to work out a deal with temporary team boss Dino Maamria.
