THE battle for ownership of Swindon Town is not over.

The High Court decision made by Nicholas Strauss QC to rule in the favour of Swinton Reds 20 and Lee Power, is being appealed.

Jed McCrory and Seebeck 87 applied to appeal the decision in August and after going through a rigorous vetting process, a Lord or Lady Justice allowed the application on October 16.

The case, which will be heard in the Court of Appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand, was initially listed for next Tuesday.

However, the parties concerned have asked for more time to prepare their cases and the court said this hearing will be put back to a later date.

On July 1, after a two-day case, Judge Strauss found the share subscription agreement between Swinton Reds and Seebeck had been extended for three years last May.

Swinton Reds, the holding company owned by Power, had sought rectification of the register of Seebeck, which owns 98.5 per cent of shares in the club.

Power’s holding company claimed to have acquired 99 per cent of the shares in Seebeck from Jed McCrory, Town’s former chairman, which Judge Strauss held up.

Neither party has been available for comment as yet.
