FA Approves Waltham Forest Company Limited Status Transfer

Mon 20th Oct 2014 | Clubs Ownership

The Football Association has approved the transfer of Waltham Forest FC as a Company Limited by guarantee to a Company Limited by shares.

This decision gives the club the opportunity to attract investment from a wider range of backers.

The new Company will be known as Waltham Forest AFC Ltd (Company number 9132463) and the Chairman is Houssein Houssein.

The chairman of the previous company, Turgut Esendagli, will remain as a major shareholder and most of the directors have joined the new company as shareholders.

Additionally, one new director has joined the Company.

The Club is looking for further shareholders to join. Shares cost £1,000 each and can be purchased by instalments.

The Club is moving forward on the pitch. Alongside the Senior Team which competes in the Essex Senior League, the Club also runs a Veterans’ Team in the Barnet Sunday League and an Under 15 and Under 16 team in the Eastern Junior Alliance, and hopes to broaden its range of teams ahead of next season to become a Club which can embrace the Waltham Forest Community.

Anyone interested in joining should contact the Secretary, Waltham Forest AFC Ltd., 29 Warwick Road, Basingstoke, RG23 8DX.
