After last night’s AGM, chairman Mike Warner spoke of his hope for stability to return to the club.

Warner, who chaired the meeting, said: “We answered every question openly and honestly. We are doing the job to the best of our ability and I don’t know what more we can do, really.

“Ashley (Carson) has got the drive and the energy to move things forward and I just want everything to settle down and carry on.”

Describing himself as a “reluctant chairman”, Warner added: “Dave Allen is leaving us to run the club while he considers his options.”

Meanwhile, director & company secretary Ashley Carson, who revealed to shareholders that the CFC Development Centre went into administration on Friday, said: “There are clearly issues that are outstanding but as far as the football club is concerned, we’re going to draw a line under it now.”

Carson last week held talks with FBT, who acquired a 50% stake in the International Academy, which is based at the CFC Village, opposite the Proact. Following those talks, a restructure has seen Liam Sutcliffe, who founded the CFC Development Centre, leave his post at the CFC Village.

Carson said: “I spoke to Mike Hegarty, who represents FBT. We wanted to see something major happen and that was always going to be Liam Sutcliffe removed from the operation in Chesterfield.”
