All the club's debts have also been paid.

New chairman Kelvin Thomas has said it will give the team a chance to focus on the FA Cup.

"This is a very positive step as we move forward. We can now focus on our review of the club and developing the future plans.

"We really enjoyed our first game in the win against Yeovil last weekend and the welcome we received from the fans was really special.

"Now it's time for the FA Cup. The players have given themselves a wonderful chance of getting into the 3rd Round and it's a great time to get behind them.”
