    Does any know of any semi-professional (amateur) english football clubs that are looking for potential buyers?

    I know this is a bit of a vague question, but any information would be appreciated.

    Thank you for finding this information, but I was thinking a much smaller team. I'm wanting one nearer to the bottom of the football leagues.

    Anymore information?

    To be honest the one for £2.5m is quite low down - it's on the seventh rung of the league ladder (Premiership being 1st).

    Newcastle United.

    For gods sake, please buy it!

    Anyone?

    And on a serious note, most of the lower division clubs would be up for grabs if the offer was right, including Bournemouth.

    I was thinking more along the lines of at the highest being 11th on the football league ladder.

    Ideally about 14th/15th.

    I am not sure how serious you are here.

    I googled football club for sale and there are a lot so it is hardly difficult to find clubs for sale.

    Maybe if you try google yourself and come back if you feel we can help you further, it may save time. :)

    I am very serious about buying a football club.

    Well to do with the google, I thought there might be an easier way.

    England should be going cheap if they carry on the way they are.

    This is something I've been interested in for a while. However, I'm a bit too young to be going down this route just yet (I'm 16). I have money in the bank, just over 12,000 but going to be saving even more in the coming years. Will be trying to start a business similar to Kwik Fit -- hopefully good times ahead. Perhaps in the near future I will invest into a club and get them to the top. :D

    A ballpark figure (excuse the pun) would help. Are you after the land/pitch as well? I would assume the much smaller ones are advertised locally.

    Well as I have said I am after a club right down the bottom of the league system.

    My aim would be to buy a club quite cheaply, and use extra finances to improve it. If the club had it's own pitch that would be good (but obviously this will increase the value).

    How about just analysing the lower-league clubs then approaching the one you believe has the most potential. I'm very interested in investing in a lower-league club. Taking advantage of the 'loan' system is the best thing you can do -- I know of quite a few players that I could get on loan from bigger clubs, such as Stoke City. Players like this would seriously help the team climb the leagues, thus more income. :)

    The problem i am facing the clubs which I am targetting seem very reluctant to sell. This down to the fact that the chairmen or managers, don't care about the money, just the status that they are in charge.

    This is why I asked if anybody knew of any clubs I could be targeting.
