Crawley Town’s new owner Ziya Eren has asked fans for their patience while they decide how to run the football club.

He and his representatives are undertaking a study of the workings of the club before they make any announcements about their future policy.

Only after they have completed their study and formulated a plan will the club hold their first press conference unveiling the new board.

Eren released a statement on the club’s website saying:

“We would like to thank you all for your patience during the takeover.

“As new owner, my representatives have only been at the club for a few days and we would kindly ask for patience while we study the workings of the football club thoroughly and prepare it for a new chapter in its history.

“Once this is completed, and with regard to our future plans, our new employees and prospective board members will be holding a media conference soon to introduce ourselves and outline the vision and strategy for our club.

“We thank you for your understanding and look forward to taking Crawley Town FC forward together.”
