North Ferriby United: FA Trophy winners put up for sale

North Ferriby
North Ferriby are the first team from outside the top tier of non-league to win the FA Trophy since 2005

Non-league North Ferriby United have been put up for sale, less than three weeks after winning the FA Trophy.

The Villagers beat Conference side Wrexham on penalties at Wembley.

The Conference North club are owned by the daughter of Hull City owner Assem Allam and her husband.

"After two very exciting years as owners we have decided that the time is now right for us to sell the club," said Eman and Steve Forster, who took over in November 2013.

"From the start of our tenure our intention was to relieve the immediate financial burden on North Ferriby United and bring to it a financial stability that meant all efforts could be concentrated on the pitch."

The Fosters said they felt the results of their investment "speak for themselves, in particular the club's recent success at Wembley".

Their statement added: "We also feel we have achieved all we can at North Ferriby United and this, along with a desire to pursue our other interests, means the time is now right for us to step aside."

Billy Heath's side are 12th in the Conference North table.
