Fan power signs player for Ebbsfleet

More than 3,000 members of the fan-owned English minor league club Ebbsfleet United have voted to approve the purchase of defender Darius Charles.

Ebbsfleet are owned by website after 21,000 members of the site paid 35 pounds ($49.39) each for a joint 75 percent share of the club last February.

In return for their investment, fans have a say in the running of the club, including ticket prices, team selection and transfers.
