Trio explain Notts move
New Notts County chief executive Geoffrey Richmond
Richmond is happy with the financial situation
Frank Strang, Raj Bhatia and Geoffrey Richmond have explained their interest in Notts County.

Business partners Bhatia and Strang had a 3m takeover application accepted in early June and are now keen to impress on the club's fans their vision of the future.

"Our aim is to put Notts County on a sound footing and allow it to grow from there," Strang told the club's official website.

"The more we have become involved in the club, the more the siren of football has pulled us in.

Bhatia is likewise delighted to be heavily involved at Meadow Lane.

"We saw this as an opportunity to save the oldest Football League club in the world and on that basis I can't understand why there weren't more people bidding to take control," said Bhatia.

Richmond, former chairman of Bradford, is satisfied the financial plans in place are sound.

"The budget is realistic and the future looks promising," said Richmond, who is the club's new chief executive.
