Club declines to comment on questions over takeover

Yeovil Town has declined to comment on a series of questions put by the Gloverscast to ask around talks relating to the takeover of the club.

A deadline for a deal to be completed set by Chairman Scott Priestnall passed on Sunday and a it is believed a loan taken out by CV Leisure, the company the chairman used to by the club, with Poole-based property finance group MSP Capital is scheduled to be repaid today (December 17).

Following the deadline, a brief statement from the Simul Sports Group, led by former Cardiff City commercial director Julian Jenkins, confirmed it was in discussion around the purchase of Yeovil Football & Athletic Club.

The Gloverscast posed the following questions to the club:

  1. Now the seven day deadline has passed from Scott Priestnall’s statement, can we expect an update on the next steps from the club?
  2. Have discussions progressed with the Simul Sports Group to overlook the deadline?
  3. There is a lot of talk on social media regards charges with MSP Capital, can the chairman clarify the situation and put supporters’ minds at ease?

On Friday, we received a response to say there would be no comment from the club on any of these questions.

For our part, we will continue to ask questions about all aspects of the on-the-field and off-the-field operation of our club on behalf of you – the club’s supporters.
