National League Maidstone United in talks with 'various parties' about potential investment into the club

Maidstone United are in talks with “various parties” about potential investment into the club.

Co-owners Oliver Ash and Terry Casey have been open to investment in recent years to allow the Stones - a club which they helped save from going under in 2010 - to continue growing.

But a statement on Friday said the Gallagher Stadium outfit “continues to be run as normal” for the time being.

“The owners of Maidstone United can confirm that discussions are taking place with various parties about possible investment into the club,” the statement read.

“While these discussions are ongoing, the club continues to be run as normal, with undivided attention on matters on and off the field.

“During the past few years, the owners have openly declared they are open to appropriate inward investment to enable the club to grow sustainably faster.

“The club will keep supporters and business partners informed as the talks progress.”

In November 2019, Mr Ash explained why he was seeking new investment at Maidstone.

He said: “Terry and I are both in our 60s, so this is a good time.

“The club is in a very good place at present, financially strong and owning its own modern ground. It’s a good time to look to bring in younger people with new energy and resources but all options are open.

“It’s going to be a question of finding people who are like-minded and whose plan we think is compatible, not just with ours, but with the long-term beneficial future of the club.

“It could be a company, it could be a family, it could be a person, it could be two people, it could be anything.”

The Stones, this season fighting relegation from the National League and sitting third-bottom, visit York this Saturday.

Maidstone returned home to the County Town in 2012, going through the leagues to be promoted to the top-tier of English non-league football, four years later.

They were relegated in 2019 but won the National League South title last campaign to return to the National League once again.
