An eighth company has been set up by Yeovil Town chairman Scott Priestnall using Huish Park as its registered address.
SP Trading was incorporated on June 24 with the nature of its business listed as “Other sports activities” and showing Priestnall as its only director.
It is presumably moving in to the same offices at Huish Park as Max Mae Ltd, a company set up by Priestnall and business acquaintance Ged McCrory in June 2021, which describes its business activities as “Development of building projects“, and Make Projects, set up by Priestnall in December 2021 for the purpose of the “Development of building projects“.
CV Leisure, the company which Priestnall and then-business partner Errol Pope used to takeover the club in 2019, is also registered at Huish Park along with Camden No 9 Ltd, which is described as being in the business of “Other retail sale not in stores, stalls or markets.”
This collection of Priestnall enterprises are all registered at the club’s address along with Yeovil Football & Athletic Club and Yeovil Town Holdings, two companies involved directly in the running of the club, and Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust Ltd.
When he set up Max Mae last year, the chairman insisted that the registration of the business at Huish Park was not unusual, saying: “All my companies have had addresses changed to Huish Park as a result of closing my London office and manage correspondence in one place.”
The recent sale by Priestnall of Huish Park and surrounding land to South Somerset District Council saw restrictive covenants which had previously been in place on the land removed, potentially opening it up for development.
These developments could all fall under the “Other Sporting Activities” and “Development of building projects” category, one assumes.
