SHRIMPS LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
MORECAMBE chairman Peter McGuigan insists the latest takeover of the club will finally yield a more secure future, writes Will Reilly.
London-based Bond Group Investments took over the majority shareholding this week – the third time the ownership of the club has changed hands in less than two years. But after the ill-fated Diego Lemos and G50 Holdings takeovers, this one should stick, according to McGuigan.
“There is no asset stripping going on as has been suggested,” McGuigan said
“The money is there and that will fund the club as well as pay off the debt.
“Their lawyer has confirmed that the funds are there – and they are because they paid the wages last month and the month before.”
After a diffcult campaign, the Shrimps saved their EFL status with a 0-0 draw at Coventry yesterday.
“We will have a fans’ forum in the next few weeks,” added McGuigan. “That means everyone can get in and ask questions. There is no date as yet but, hopefully, it could be as soon as the week after next.”
