"We look forward to engaging now with the Dale Trust to answer any questions that they may have regarding our investment and with local politicians to gauge the level of support we can expect to receive to support our investment in RAFC.

"We could not let 100 years of history go to waste, and we believe we can work together to elevate The Dale back to its previous heights and beyond.

"We look forward to visiting Rochdale for the game on the 9th March against Oxford City."
