Scott Brown is preparing for a potential Fleetwood Town change in ownership after current custodian Andy Pilley stepped down as chairman.

The businessman has been found guilty of fraud and has been remanded in custody. As reported by the Blackpool Gazette, the chairman at the English League One club 'was found guilty of two counts of running a business with the intention of defrauding creditors, one count of false representation and one count of being concerned with the retention of criminal property.' And now long-serving CEO Steve Curwood takes over as interim chairman, with talks sought with the EFL over a change in ownership.

Celtic legend Brown took charge last summer and guided them to 13th place alongside a record-breaking FA Cup run. A Fleetwood statement reads: "Fleetwood Town can confirm Andy Pilley has stepped down as chairman and director of the club.

Steve Curwood, who has been the Club’s CEO for 15 years, will be appointed interim chairman with current vice chairman Phil Brown to join the board as a director. "The club have this week entered discussions with the EFL in relation to requirements surrounding a change of ownership and control.
