BRIDGWATER United Football Club's owners have announced they will be stepping down from the club.

In a statement issued on the club website, owners Adam and Sarah Murry said: "We are announcing that we will be stepping down as Owners and Board of Directors of Bridgwater United Mens Football Club due to personal commitments."

The decision to step down comes with a further announcement that details on the new owners will be made clear on Monday, May 15.

“This is being done while we prepare the Club and wish to ensure that the Club is ready for the transition from our time as owners to the new owners, who are willing to make the sacrifices and inject fresh energy that is required to continue to build this great Club from the foundations that are now in place.”

Murry took over the club in late 2020 when the club was Bridgwater Town FC.

He added: "After dedicating thousands of miles, thousands of hours, major investment, including valuable, dedicated and ongoing efforts into the club and trust, we look back with pride at what the Club has become in the years of our ownership, since taking it on when the Clubs’ future was extremely uncertain."

In his opinion, the club now needs a 'fresh energy' to move it forward.

"The football club with potentially huge projects in place, now requires local and fresh energy to take the club to the next level and continue to put systems in place to make it sustainable for the future generations."

During the time Murry spent at the club, a number of local businesses and people helped to shape the club's journey.

Murry thanked the sponsors, supporters and volunteers.

"A sincere thank you to our Principal Partners and Support Sponsors for their continued support over the seasons.

"It has been our pleasure to work with embedded sponsor support within the Club which is paramount.

"The club’s fans have been brilliant over the past 3 years, during much change for the better and the increase in the away following has been great to see and does not go unnoticed. The fans shouldn’t underestimate their impact on the squads."

And finally, he gave special thanks to key staff members.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for welcoming us into Bridgwater, especially to Dave Pearse and Bob Buckingham and other key members of staff and volunteers for their valued hard work, and we will continue to watch the clubs progress in the seasons to come."

The new owners of Bridgwater United are set to release their statement this coming Monday.
