‘We have been able to pay off our football creditors and have the embargo lifted,’ said Sellstrom.

‘A lot of hard work has gone on in the background to get to this point.

‘It is a massive step in the right direction for the club.

‘It helps take some of the shackles off manager Mick Catlin and give him a chance.

‘Up until now he has been working with his hands and feet tied together.

‘Now he will have a little bit more freedom to operate in his own right.’
