Commenting after the announcement that Pars United have taken formal control of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club, Scottish Liberal Democrat Dunfermline by-election candidate Susan Leslie said:

"This has been a painful time for the Pars but the one thing that has been clear throughout this process is the support for the club from people right across Dunfermline.

"Today's announcement was only possible thanks to the generous support of the local community and football fans right across Scotland.

"This is a big step forwards but there is plenty of work left to be done to secure the future of the Pars. Club, council and community alike have an interest in ensuring that problems with the lease at Pitreavie are fixed and fixed quickly. The council need to take a lead here and ensure that we build on the progress that has been made."
