Saints chairman Eamonn McManus will make a “significant” announcement about the club’s future today.
Officials are remaining tight-lipped about the nature of the announcement, declining even to comment on whether it relates to either playing staff or the club’s finances.
McManus is due to speak at a hastily-arranged press conference at 2.15pm on Thursday.
A number of senior players, including Paul Wellens, Jonny Lomax and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, are also expected to attend.
