Date published: July 2 2016

Bath have released a statement stressing that the Premiership club is not to be sold, despite recent talk in the media saying otherwise.

The Recreation Ground side, who recently announced that head coach Mike Ford had departed the club, offered an update via their website.

"We would like to take this opportunity to address recent rumours in the media, and confirm that Bath Rugby is not being sold and will remain under the sole ownership of Bruce Craig. The club, the team, and the stadium development all remain a long term commitment and passion for Bruce," read the statement.

"We recognise that there has been a lot of rumour and speculation lately, particularly with regard to the coaching structure, and we understand your frustrations while waiting for news.  

"We are in the process of finalising the coaching structure and we will notify you as soon as an announcement is ready to be made."
