Dunfermline fans are waiting to find out if their bid to take over the club has been successful

Administrators BDO announced a creditors' meeting would be held on July 30 to consider the offer.

Pars United was last week named preferred bidder for the Second Division club. The alliance of fans' groups is aiming to raise £500,000 to fund the takeover.

The sum would be made up largely from investment by patrons but also from £100,000 in fan donations - they have so far raised £86,000 from this source.

A statement from BDO read: "Meetings of creditors and members of Dunfermline Athletic FC are being held at East End Park on Tuesday 30 July 2013 at 12 noon and 3pm respectively to consider the Joint Administrators' proposals for a Creditors Voluntary Arrangement."
