Boardroom battle delays contract talks

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Swindon Town boss Mark Cooper Swindon Town boss Mark Cooper

THE current boardroom wrangle at Swindon Town has delayed contract talks for a number of out-of-contract stars and youth-teamers waiting to discover whether or not they have earned their first pro deals.

Seebeck 87 Ltd, the company used to acquire Swindon Town Football Company Ltd in January 2013, have claimed that they still own the club, despite the publicising of a takeover by current chairman Lee Power in December.

A High Court hearing will take place in London on Tuesday, when a judge will decide whether or three proposed directors - all of whom are also on the board of Seebeck 87 - can be installed onto the club’s board.

The trio, Adam Fynn, Debbie Priestnall and David Smith, have all attended meetings at the County Ground in the space of the last week, along with former Town general manager Steve Murrall, Martin King and the company’s legal brief.

Until the confusion is resolved, however, it appears that the 17 players who see their current terms with the Robins expire on July 1, as well as four second-year scholars who have yet to be told whether or not they will be retained next season, will have to wait.

Swindon manager Mark Cooper revealed on Easter Monday that Power had begun tentative discussions with the representatives of Troy Archibald-Henville about a possible extension to his time in Wiltshire, but those conversations are likely to be put on hold until the board-level issues are ironed out.

Sixteen other members of the first-team squad, including Nile Ranger, Jay McEveley and Raphael Branco, also need to have their futures decided.

The four youth-team players - Curtis Da Costa, Matty Jones, Salvyn Kisitu and Liam Walsh - were due to find out this week if they were to be handed one-year pro contracts after completing the relevant academic coursework. However, those decisions have now also been put off for the time being.

Cooper said of the situation: “Until things are resolved then it’s very difficult to say.

“It’s not the ideal situation but we can’t worry about that. We have to worry about two games and firstly Notts County on Saturday.

“It’s difficult, with what’s going on, to know who’s staying and who’s going and what state the club’s going to be in.

“It’s not ideal but we’ve just got to keep going.

“We’ve had a brilliant season, in my opinion, on the pitch and I want to finish it off and concentrate on coaching and working on the players, who have been brilliant to work with this year.”

I fear another pre-season of discontent, disruption, late signings and ill preperation. Just what we did not need a repeat of.
.
Every time it looks as though a period of reasonable stability is on the horizon, something creeps out of the woodwork.
.
I had been very optimistic for a fruitful pre season and a real chance of going for it next season, now I'm full of doubt again.

Here we go the start of the Jed era already starting to ruin things for this club by putting talks on hold with the players. This will put doubt in many of the players mind about the future of this club and where if Jed is here where he will take us.
I just hope Power sorts this and gets rid of this scum bag.

Wilesey - i agree with your comments why if Jed feels his company is the woner of this club try and buy others as it would be a conflict of interest and is not permitted. As i said yesterday he is so distrusted the likes of Hereford turn him down and i know someone at Hereford who are so desperate for money they would bite your hand off for money but whay Jed told them of his prposed plans they turned away from so says it all for me about this creep.
I hope this gets concluded next week once and for all and we see the back of jed and his crew.
There is obviously alot of aminosity between the likes of Murall, Jed and Power it seems. My understanding Jed had intially about 25% share holding but whether that is still the case i dont know but Power still has the majority shareholding of 51% i hope.
I really hope Power has got something up his sleeve for next week.
If Jed seriously thinks fans want him back here then he is very much mistaken as many fans have seen him for what he is was in his time here.
If you want to play chairman Jed go back to Banbury Utd where i understand you made alot of promises there which you never fullfilled and buying a few drinks for fans doesnt do it for me trying to get people to think you are a great bloke. You need to creep back under the rock you came out of and disappear from our club for good.
With the potential of keeping a decent squad together for next season and some additions this could all blow up in our face by Jed's ruination of what he is attempting to do.
So JED in a nutshell WE DONT WANT YOU BACK P*** O** but your used to people saying that to you Jed and you dont give a toss for what the fans think as you are just after that pot of money to line your pockets and provide this club with ex Banbury Utd players as you started to do last year by putting them on trial here. Get stuffed JED.

The answer to that Don, why would Lee Power get involved with negotiating new contracts if he is not legally the owner. Should he lose in the courts next Tuesday, he will probably appeal the decision or decide to sell up in which case his main interest will be to see a return on his investment and where would that leave us, Worrying times.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see Jed driving this as there has been no mention of his involvement, it seems to me Murrell is the driving force behind the attempted coup. A slime ball I definitely would not trust with my grand children's money boxes..

This was exactly the point I was making to your "who cares" post the other day (that's not a pop, just that even if we're interested what happens in the boardroom or not, there are knock on effects) - I'm not a big one for the off field shenanigans but this is exactly the reason why we should care, because the boardroom nonsense affects our ability to perform on the pitch.

The supposed 5 miilion that Jed touted to Hereford that he could get is money from and Indian IT consultant company and that says it all to me and is it really 5 million and i wouldnt trust them either even though i dont know anything about them but its just their nature of how they do business having dealt with a few of them over the years.

As another poster has mentioned I think Mark Cooper has done really well this season when you consider he has had to put together (or had one thrown at him) a totally new team after being handed the reigns in such strange and bizzare fashion in regards to the Kevin Mac saga. As the season has gone on he has had to put up with a hell of a lot stick and abuse form all sections of the fans - it seems at times he does nothing right but we are still 7th so he has got it right somewhere along the line and the team is not in a relegation dog-fight as many, many people said we would be with him in charge. Bearing in mind the amount of stuff that has gone on in the boardroom it's remarkable how well he's done and despite everything he doesn't moan (excluding Refs!) about the situation and has just got on with it (think the Ranger saga). It also has to be said that the spirit within the team seems really good and upbeat and the players seem to genuinely like him and that sums it up really and bodes well for next season whoever owns the club by then.

Two things I'd like to know why Jed has now come back, I know people believe he's done it to take the ST money, but I don't buy into that. Secondly why did he leave in the first place.

To be fair I haven't felt comfortable since Andrew left.

I thought that Power always had an option to buy out Jed after all the money he invested. Obviously though he hasn't bought all the club,only a controlling interest. I wonder if he had an option to buy the rest of the shares from McCrory but hasn't taken it up, (maybe they want more money!) therefore leaving Seebeck87 back at the table, which might also suggest the timing of this. If the High Court allowed them back round the boardroom table, they obviously have some sort of right to be there.

I agree with you, this is nothing to do with season ticket sales, any profits from them (most probably have paid monthly anyway) will be eaten up by the losses the club are making, remember we are not breaking even yet.

It's worrying though that Power is not negotiating new contracts, does that mean that if he loses the case he will sell up? or can he not do it without Seebeck's agreement.

Agree about the excellent job Mark Cooper has done after

a) taking over at the last minute
b) being given a team to work with
c) coping with Ranger
d) having his hands tied financially
e) putting up with this farcical boardroom tit for tat rubbish

Just how many directors have we seen come and go in the last 16 months it's ridiculous. Shame it's all kicked off again.

Surely if these people (both sides) are real businessmen it should be crystal clear to all parties who owns the club? Escorted off by security? Banned from the club? Revolving door of directors? Court case to decide ownership? Banning the local paper for a tweet? Kicking off in Adver Towers? Trying to buy other clubs while claiming to own a club already?

Surely this isn't how honorable businessmen behave?

This is simply just embarrassing for the club, yet again.

Yeah quite, I do trust Lee Power he's straight talking, but does cover up a lot of the goings behind the scenes which to be fair I'm not too fussed about so long as they're in the clubs best interest.

The Sangita Shar fiasco with her saying that she'll be transparent.........

I don't think it's as simple as that. I was very supportive of Jed when he took over, and am still grateful to him for saving us from administration, but after all the up's and down's of the last few seasons, I think most fans want a settled time behind the scenes. I have been amazed how well this season has gone, on and off the playing field, it's seems as though Power is taking us in the right direction, so the last thing anyone wants is another power struggle in the boardroom.

There are still a couple of blind pew types on here-continue to support this crap regime and fail to see their own blinkered views,naive judgement of character or the continuation of the lies,deceit and mismanagement that has blighted this club since the **** parked his caravan at sn1.Okay,the caravan may have gone but the pile of rubbish is still there and he hasn't come back to take it away-more like put some more on the ever growing pile!!The whole lot of them are not fit for purpose.This club with the catchment area it lies within has huge potential-we briefly saw it under Hoddle-but now we are just a doormat for these power crazy,blood sucking leaches who have no interest whatsoever in the football.Another season trying to dodge the administration bullet.

I use the word " appear " because , to be honest nobody knows for sure , what goes on behind the scenes , we can only base our opinions on what we've been told . So I reserve my view until after the court case , of which I hope Lee Power wins, because he appears to be the right man to run this club . But we will find out in due course, that's for sure .
