Businessman Martin Hellier has said he will make “a full offer” for Yeovil Town – and walk away if he is rebuffed.
The owner of Hellier Group, which sponsors the Main Stand at Huish Park, made the declaration in a tweet posted after the Glovers’ 1-0 defeat at Woking on Tuesday night.
The post read: “Tomorrow I will make a full offer for the club and grounds. If I’m refused, I walk. Goodnight.”
In a previous post he had added: “Change managers as often as you want. It’s players you need and there’s only one way that’s going to happen…”
The tweets were responded to by a number of supporters seeking to clarify the businessman’s intentions, he added that he was talking about “a full buy-back” of the club, its Huish Park stadium and surrounding land.
The stadium and surrounding land is now in the ownership of South Somerset District Council following the sale of it by current owner and chairman Scott Priestnall in May, so one assumes Hellier’s offer will be heading to the council as much as the chairman.
