Following the press release by Mr Graham Burnard at 19.00hrs this evening this is the response from the Board of Directors;
There was communication between Mr Peter McGuigan and Mr Graham Burnard today re a possible buyer for Morecambe Football Club.
This was discussed via telephone with members of the Board and Mr McGuigan sent an email response to Mr Burnard at 14.58hrs. The message in this email was very clear and concise with a suggestion that we all meet next week to agree the way forward.
An email response was received from Mr Burnard at 15.00hrs stating, "No problem”.
The next thing we heard was a call from the Press at 19.17hrs and an email containing Mr Burnard's press release.
At no time in the earlier conversations or emails was the subject of resignations from the current Board mentioned.
The majority of wages have been authorised and will hit employees' bank accounts, on time, tomorrow (Friday). The club plans to honour the rest of staff wages tomorrow (October 28th).
The Board of Directors plan to hold a Press Conference early next week on a date and time to be confirmed and Mr Graham Burnard will be invited to this.
