Football: Everton chairman Bill Kenwright today reiterated his determination to find new owners for the club.
Kenwright made the comments as the Toffees announced a net loss of £9.1 million for the 2011-12 season.
The club’s annual results revealed an increase of £3.7m from the £5.4m net loss made the season before, while turnover fell from £82m to £80.5m.
Everton’s poor start to last season played its part in contributing to a fall in gate receipts and season ticket sales while the Toffees were picked for fewer live TV games.
But the Goodison Park outfit are confident the current financial year will bring better news, with season ticket sales up 6.4 per cent.
Kenwright said: “My desire to find a person, or institution, with the finance to move us forward has not diminished.
“Despite the challenges presented by a global economic downturn, we remain positive and determined.”
