The consortium say a cash offer to the current board has been made and they would fund ground improvements required to stay in the Blue Square Premier.

One of the bidders, Lee Cobb, told BBC Southern Counties Radio: "We were told new backers were coming in - they haven't materialised.

"We have a number of large backers who are prepared to say we have the money."

Cobb, assistant chair of the Lewes Supporters Club, is warning there is increasing fan discontent after the departure of manager Steve King and the squad that won the Blue Square South title.

He said: "If I was a potential sponsor I would not want to sponsor the club - the calibre of players they are getting in at the moment are not up to Blue Square Premier standard.

"Quite prominent members of the supporters club are talking about boycotts of the games. We will organise a protest if needs be.

"What they (the current board) are proposing is not in the best interests of the club - what we are proposing is."
