LAWYERS representing Swindon Town owner Lee Power and former chairman Jed McCrory’s holding company, Seebeck 87 Ltd, are due to return to court at the end of this week.
An application has been made for the case to be heard at the Rolls Building in London on Friday, as the two sides continue to dispute the ownership of the club and Seebeck’s right to insert three new directors onto the Robins’ board.
The Chancery Listings office confirmed to the Advertiser yesterday that the case has been scheduled to appear in courtroom 10 at 4.30pm.
At an original hearing in mid-April the three proposed board members - Adam Fynn, Debbie Priestnall and David Smith - were given permission to be “observer” directors, according to the club, with no powers to pass any resolutions until the issue had been decided by a judge in the High Court.
Since then, the case has been heard again at the Rolls Building but was adjourned by Justice Warren on April 29.
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 Ltd in December.
In a statement on Good Friday, it was revealed that the club are in the process of taking legal action against McCrory.
