SWINDON TOWN: Swindon Town release statement regarding boardroom confusion
SWINDON Town have released a statement regarding the attempt by Seebeck 87 Ltd to appoint three new directors to the club's board.
As revealed by the Advertiser this morning, the club's former holding company has made moves to bring Adam Fynn, Debbie Priestnall and David Smith onto the board of directors at the County Ground.
In the statement, Swindon Town say, following a court hearing in London on Wednesday, Seebeck were permitted to appoint three 'observer' directors with "no power to pass any reolutions" until the High Court of Justice reconvenes on April 29.
It also suggests that none of the three have passed the Football League's fit and proper persns test.
The statement reads: "Following a series of legal actions against the former Chairman, Mr McCrory has attempted to appoint directors to the Club.
"On April 16th, a decision to place an injunction against the appointment of these new directors to the Club has been adjourned at the High Courts of Justice. The Court Order however has permitted the appointment of three 'observer' directors to the Club with no power to pass any resolutions until the Court reconvenes on April 29th.
"The 'directors' have not passed the Owner's and Director's Football League's Fit and Proper test and are temporary with no decision making powers. The Club will abide by the intention of the Court until readjournment in the High Court on the 29th April.
"The Club stands by the statements made on Dec 3rd by both Mr Power, Chairman of the Club and Mr McCrory the previous Chairman."
