Following Monday's news that Trivela Group had purchased a majority shareholding in Walsall Football Club, Leigh Pomlett and managing director of Trivela Benjamin Boycott took part in a press conference.

The duo, who are now co-chairmen of the club, discussed several topics, including how the deal came to be, short and long-term the ambitions for the club, and much more.

Boycott, who is part of a group of investors who form Trivela Group, admitted he is hoping to help the club move forward by adding to the work already done by Leigh Pomlett and the existing board of directors.

Speaking to the assembled media, Benjamin said; "I'm honoured to be able to say I'm a director of Walsall Football Club and privileged to be here.
"This is a big and important club, a history and a legacy here and on behalf of all of us our true complements go to Walsall. It is a club that has always been in the EFL and been financially sustainable.
"There is a foundation of leadership here. We are positive about the appointment of Michael Flynn, he came in during a difficult situation and delivered results, and we are here behind him.
"The leadership is here, we believe in Michael, and we are accelerators. We have people in business and football people to help accelerate, and the right investments can help things move forward.
"We share ambitions, we want to see us in League One and fighting for promotion to the Championship. The resources, infrastructure and support is here, and there is no reason why it can't happen.
"We set out to invest in clubs and the first thing that drew us here was the passion and energy, it is unique and special, and you can see it in season ticket sales.
"Operationally, it is very well run, and financially. Things are working well here, and the last piece is the potential. It has all potential of upper League One club here and it became obvious it was where we wanted to be."
