New owner and debts wiped at Tigers

15th January, 2018

Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Worksop Town have announced that the club is now debt free and is under new ownership.

Local businessman Paul Tomkins is the new chairman after he bought the shares in the club owned by his predecessor Jason Clark who has also written off all money owed to him by the Tigers.

A statement on Worksop's website said: "Fans may already be familiar with Mr Tomkins who has been involved with the club for a number of months.

"We are delighted today that it can be confirmed that he will take charge of all club matters with immediate effect and become the Worksop Town FC chairman.

"Paul Tomkins is a pragmatic businessman and owns businesses local to the area, Paul came into and immediately fell in love with the club around July, he engineered (literally) the success of the brand-new stand just weeks into his involvement outlining his exciting intentions from the get-go.

"Worksop Town would like to express our gratitude to Jason Clark for his many years of support and guidance through some troubling times, our thanks are extended with the news that Jason has now written off his debt giving the new ownership a blank canvas to work from at the football club.

"We would also like to thank supporters, volunteers, officials, the management team and our players for their patience during this process of change.

"The club will announce details of an open forum in due course in which the ownership and people involved will be introduced to the supporters."
