THE Northwich Vics takeover has been completed at last.
The deal was struck on Wednesday, which means the club is now being run by Jim Rushe, Nick Bone and Ian Campbell and that the era of Mike Connett is at an end.
Rushe and Bone have been the driving forces being the takeover, while Campbell will be the new chairman, a role he undertook at Woodley Sports.
No details of the takeover have been released but nearly all the negotiations have been with the Inaldn Revenue, who were owed an estimated £400,000.
The outright sale of the club means the team is not deducted points.
Rushe said: “I am delighted. Our very first job is to secure the services of the manager, Dino Maamria.
“He’s only been temporary, but we full expect him to take the job perfectly.
“He is confident of avoiding relegation and it is our job now to support him in any way we can. We are not setting our targets too high - we know we can stay up.’
Rushe also said Vics would live within their means and that is meant attracting new fans and new backers.
He will attend an open meeting run by the Supporters Trust at the Floatel on Tuesday (8pm) to answer fans’ questions.
