Ryan McKnight has resigned from his role as Frickley Athletic director.

Former Stockport County chief executive McKnight will remain a director of the Frickley Athletic Community Foundation. Frickley also confirm that the North of England Football Academy (NEFA) are to write off 'a significant six-figure sum of loans into the club.'

While highlighting that the club are in 'a position where it owes no normal trading partners anything,' the following was said regarding investment:

"Unlike other leagues, there is to be no financial assistance from the Northern Premier League for its clubs, and as of yet, there are no plans for financial assistance from the Football Association. In fact, the loss of the league’s sponsor (BetVictor) will have repercussions for all clubs at our level beyond the current situation.

"So, given both of those scenarios, we are calling on any individual or organisation that would be interested in becoming a senior figure at the club (in board position) to come forward. The club is of course looking for additional investment into helping us continue to build the competitive ability of the first team, as well as the off-the-field operations."
