Cornish Pirates owner Dicky Evans has announced that he'll be handing over control of the club by the end of this season.
Evans led the Championship side into the professional era but 20 years on, the 67-year-old will now sell to a consortium of 100 share holders. He will continue to personally invest sponsorship money.
His ambition of taking the Pirates to the Premiership has been held up with Cornwall not having a stadium fit for the top-flight.
A new stadium in Truro has been granted planning permission and is due for completion in 2017 - but still requires funding.
