Swindon Town ownership reaches court today

This Is Wiltshire: Swindon Town ownership reaches court today Swindon Town ownership reaches court today

THE two parties claiming ownership of Swindon Town Football Club return to court today in a bid to settle the matter.

Swinton Reds 20 Ltd and Seebeck 87 Ltd, the holding companies of current chairman Lee Power and former chairman Jed McCrory respectively, will be represented at the Rolls Building in London today with both claiming to own the club.

Seebeck claim they are still the rightful owners of Swindon Town Football Company Ltd, despite the publicising of a takeover by Power’s Swinton Reds 20 in December. In April they attempted to place three directors on the board.

At an original hearing in mid-April the three proposed board members were given permission to be “observer” directors, according to the club, but had no power to pass any resolutions until the issue has been decided by a High Court judge.

Since then, the case has been heard again at the Rolls Building but was adjourned by Justice Warren on April 29 before a date was agreed for an expeditious trial at a later hearing.

A statement issued by the football club originally stated the case was due to be heard on June 26, but it has in fact now been moved forward by a day to be heard this morning by Mr N Strauss QC.
