Ramsbottom United Chairman Harry Williams has issued the following statement:
“Recent speculation regarding the management team at Ramsbottom United has caused concern and worry for those involved.
“I need to reiterate that the club is firmly behind the current set-up of manager Mark Fell, assistant Graham Lancashire and coach Scott Campbell, whose hard work continues to be fully appreciated by everyone.
“We have had a poor run of results, which unfairly reflect the effort that has been put in at the club, and this has led to a number of assumptions, based upon rumour and innuendo, which are totally incorrect.
“I have no doubt that the results will begin to turn, and have full confidence in the players and management teams’ ability to turn things around.
“Such negativity has no place at Ramsbottom United, and I hope that the supporters will continue to get behind the team as we enter the second half of the season.”
