Kenwright still seeks a saviour

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright is doing all he can to find a buyer for the cash-strapped club.

Everton yesterday released details of their accounts for the financial year ending 31 May, 2011, which showed net debt remaining stable at £44.9m. Everton reported an increase in turnover of 3.7 per cent, but an operating loss of £500,000. Kenwright said: "Try as I might, I was unable to accomplish the task which has dominated my life these past few years, finding the man to move us forward."
