New Bournemouth owners revealed

Bournemouth

Bournemouth have announced that marketing group Sport-6 have become the new owners of the club.

The directors of the Merseyside-based company - Paul Baker and Alastair Saverimutto - will join the board, with the latter as chief executive.

Jeff Mostyn will remain chairman of the football club, along with vice-chairman Steve Sly.

Sport-6 say they will invest a seven-figure sum into the Cherries, and are fully behind manager Kevin Bond.

I want supporters to be confident that we're going to give them a proud football club

New board member Paul Baker
Paul Baker is the latest businessman to try to transform the fortunes of the cash stricken south coast club and their long suffering fans.

He told BBC Radio Solent: "I'm a supporter and they are a supporter. They'll be doing due diligence on the new owners as I would have done.

"I want them to be confident that we're going to give them a proud football club.

"The club has come in off the life support system and now it's going into a period of convalescence, and we're all responsible and the fans are going to play a massive part in that convalescence."

The club have also had their transfer embargo relaxed and can now sign players not under contract and bring in players on loan.
