Aussie in­vestors eye up Sky Blues

Nuneaton Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE - What we don’t want to do is what so many own­ers do and that’s alien­at­ing the fans early

with a fresh of­fer af­ter hav­ing both bids dis­missed as “de­risory” by the club’s Lon­don hedge fund own­ers Sisu.

His lat­est bid could have been worth in ex­cess of £10mil­lion - but came with an ini­tial up front pay­ment of £1.2m.

CCFC sup­port­ers’ group the Sky Blue Trust has ex­pressed an in­ter­est in a sup­porter-led takeover of the club.

It has ap­proached Sisu chief ex­ec­u­tive Joy Sep­pala over talks twice - but has been snubbed on both oc­ca­sions.

The group wanted to un­der­take ex­ploratory dis­cus­sions with a view to start­ing fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties if it was given an in­di­ca­tion a deal could be pos­si­ble.

Last week, the Sky Blue Trust ex­pressed a de­sire to meet with Mr Hoff­man and dis­cuss whether the group could sup­port Mr Hoff­man’s con­sor­tium of lo­cal busi­ness­men.
