Yeovil Town have announced a new takeover at the club, with immediate effect.
The takeover has brought an end to a spell which has seen them relegated two tiers from the FA WSL to the FA Women's National League, but the news can now bring some long awaited stability to its future.
The club has made the following statement detailing the new ownership:
"We are pleased to announce that Yeovil Town Ladies Football Club is now under new ownership headed by Businessman Adam Murry.
The deal for the Tier Three outfit was agreed yesterday.
Mr Murry said: "This is a hugely exciting time for women's football. There has never been as much interest in the women's game and I am delighted to have been able to support the takeover. This great club has absolutely enormous potential."
Mr Murry, from Bournemouth, heads up an Elite Soccer Academy located in Tampa, Florida USA, where women's soccer is taken extremely seriously, and in 2008, headed up the rescue of AFC Bournemouth after it was placed in administration. He appointed Eddie Howe as manager when the club was rock bottom of the 4th Division on a -17 point standing.
Murry says he has big plans for YTLFC: "We want to create a solid investment in the club's structure, from the first team right through to the Academies, with plans to take the club back into the higher leagues. We have selected a management team going forward, to create a solid platform and structure to build and develop on all at a higher level. This is a great time for women's football as England's success in the World Cup has clearly shown."
