Notts County announce Alan Hardy takeover officially completed

Joe Jones

Notts County have confirmed that Alan Hardy is the new owner of the club.

The Nottinghamshire businessman declared yesterday on Twitter that he "finally got there" and the takeover is now officially rubber-stamped.

It had been a tense few days this week as the transfer of ownership was expected to be completed on Monday, but a snag over the payment of a loan was successfully overcome.

Hardy, who takes over from Ray Trew, told the official Magpies site: “I am absolutely delighted to have brought these discussions to a positive conclusion and I am immensely proud and humbled to be the owner and chairman of this great football club.

“Clearly we all face a challenging time ahead but I am determined we should all meet these challenges head on.

"We have a huge amount of work to undertake and it is crucial that everyone connected with the club pulls together in the same direction.

"I wish to pay thanks to all Notts supporters for their backing, encouragement and humour in recent weeks and months.

"Our home fixture with Mansfield on Saturday has already adopted huge significance and I hope we will be able to see a huge groundswell of Notts support at Meadow Lane.

"My message to everyone would be to come down and support your club. We need it now as much as at any point in our club's illustrious history."
