SHRIMPS LOOK­ING TO THE FU­TURE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

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.”
