Good morning my Fishy Friends,

Seems the flack continues towards me over the transfer of Trust shares to me, 200,000 of them.

I've asked the Trust in the past to clear such matters up as the flack isn't justified at all, but in the absence I will.

It's very True that in the situation I found myself through no fault of mine, that control did not sit within the boardroom.

To my recollection I don't recall ever stating that we would have to sell Liam Hearn, but it was the case that I stated I wouldn't put another penny in the club, untill shareholding control in the boardroom was restored.

It was a fact that by the December the Club needed funds without which speculation suggested we might need to sell a player. (Liam Hearn)

It is a fact that the Chair of the Trust and the CEO of the Club negotiated the proposal put to me.

At no time and to be very clear, did I coheres those discussions whatsoever, or were involved in meetings where they were discussed with members of the Trust.

Following Trust members voting for a Transfer to me the said block of shares, I then proposed that I would purchase £200.000 shares additional in effect balanceing the proposal.

There were several other ways my concers could have been met, with or without transferring of the shares, but this is what was put to me and I accepted in the best interest of the club.

I'm sure some will continue to twist these facts, but for the genuine fans that may want to know, this puts the record straight.

Kind regards John Fenty

Wish you would just ignore it John a public forum is no place to discuss this matter no matter what you say some on here will never believe it.

Half of it is a bloody wind up I'm sure some get a real kick out of this.

PS. If we lose today don't go on the fishy.

Don`t know whether I do or don`t,  if it was all smileys it would be ok, but because its not he`s just fuelling the fires of whatever,  to some.
Still you have to admire his efforts as a fan to at least explain, ( let he with no sins cast the first stone)
