It is a shame that, whilst all in the football world should be pulling together to ensure the ongoing viability of football clubs and the game in general, this journalist appears to seek scandal where none exists. He will no doubt publish this story, which is nothing more than a trouble-making cheap shot. Accordingly, in the interest of transparency, we publish both his email to the Club and the Club’s reply below.
We have redacted certain names and financial information in his email in the interest of preserving the confidentiality of the parties involved.
