Buyers end interest in Salisbury

Nick Holmes
Boss Holmes cannot sign any players until a deal is completed

The two potential buyers for Salisbury are no longer interested in the club.

Chairman Neville Beal put the Whites up for sale for £1 in April, but with just over a month until the new season, they are no closer to a new owner.

There are still individuals looking to get involved but not on the scale of a consortium - and manager Nick Holmes told BBC Wiltshire he was frustrated.

"The people who had initially said they were interested don't seem so now," he said. "It's quite frustrating really."

Salisbury returned for pre-season training on Monday with the majority of their out-of-contract players left in limbo.

Only four squad members are under contract for the 2009-10 Blue Square Premier campaign and Holmes cannot complete any more deals until a takeover is completed.

"We started training, we've got a good group and a lot of the boys that were here last season have turned up in the hope that there will be something on the table in a couple of weeks," added Holmes.

"We'll wait and see what the next step is and hopefully there will be an announcement soon."
