VICS owner Jim Rushe has issued a joint statement following a summit on his club’s home ground earlier today, Monday.

It reads:

FOLLOWING the recent announcement that a company [Thor Specialities (UK) Ltd] has bought the Victoria Stadium, a meeting took place today, Monday, with representatives from Cheshire FA, Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC), the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League, the Football Stadium Improvement Fund, Sport England and Northwich Victoria Football Club.

This meeting was purely a fact-finding one about the current situation.

The main outcome was that further meetings would be required in the coming weeks and months.

In the meantime, the football club will continue to work on sourcing a suitable ground [to host home matches] between now and the end of the current season.
