The new directors at Worksop Town are from left, Paul Tomkins, Niall Robertson, Paul Williams and Jake Brown.

Businessmen Paul Williams, Paul Tomkins and Niall Robertson took charge of the club on Tuesday after buying out the shares of previous owner Jason Clark.

And the Proact CEO, owner since 2010, has written off the £550,000 debt he was owed by the club.

Williams will be the Tigers managing director, Shireoaks man Tomkins the club chairman and Robertson the director of operations.

According to Williams, their vision for the NCEL Premier League club is to not only keep it alive, but give it another ‘golden era.’

“We’re not like sugar daddy football owners, we’ve not got millions of pounds to throw at it,” he said.

“What we’re trying to do is build an off the pitch team to make the club self sustaining and operate as a really successful football club that sustains the first team on the pitch.

“The beauty of this club is that it’s still a proper town community club.

“It’s got a massive following, the passion in the fans is brilliant. It’s second to none.

“Don’t think of us as normal owners, think of us more as trustees, we’re here to make sure it never goes under, that it grows, gets back to where it was and has another golden era.”
