BRAZIL­IAN BUYS THE SHRIMPS...

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BRAZIL­IAN busi­ness­man Diego Le­mos has pur­chased a con­trol­ling share in More­cambe, sub­ject to con­sent from the Foot­ball League.

Peter McGuigan, chair­man of the Shrimps – who went into this week­end’s round of League Two ac­tion top of the ta­ble – has sold his share to Le­mos, a for­mer foot­ball agent.

McGuigan has been chair­man and ma­jor­ity share­holder at the club for 16 years and was a key player in the move from their old ground at Christie Park to their cur­rent home of the Globe Arena. It was re­vealed in March that McGuigan was put­ting the club up for sale.

“Hav­ing been chair­man for 16 years, I feel the time is right for a new owner to take the club for­ward and build on a strong plat­form that ex­ists,” McGuigan said at the time.
