Poole up for sale

Western Daily Press - - Sport -

POOLE pro­moter Matt Ford savoured the club’s Pre­mier­ship ti­tle tri­umph – then con­firmed the Pi­rates are up for sale.

The Dorset out­fit lost their Grand Fi­nal sec­ond leg 51-39 at King’s Lynn on Wed­nes­day, but won 92-88 on ag­gre­gate.

Ford has en­joyed a tro­phy­laden 20 years in charge of the Dorset club, but has now de­clared his in­ten­tion to stand aside, al­though that may not be an im­me­di­ate move.

He said: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to the rid­ers and man­age­ment team. The way the boys have per­formed to take us from bot­tom to win­ning the ti­tle in just a few months is as­tound­ing. But noth­ing lasts for­ever and I can con­firm the club is up for sale. I won’t aban­don the club though.”
