Community ownership thanks to Pars United

icon woareyer20 October ~ The Dunfermline Athletic supporters' group Pars United have agreed a deal to take control of their club, as well as acquiring East End Park stadium, under a community ownership structure. The club's plight was covered in WSC 315, when a tax bill of £134,000 forced them to enter administration. New chairman Bob Garmory said: "The last few months have been a painful and frustrating time for everyone connected with Dunfermline Athletic. However, we ask that all Pars supporters and the wider west Fife community now look forward, not back, with a renewed sense of optimism and spirit."
