Quoted from golfer
Can we sign those 2 wingers from Rosenborg there aren't any for sale in England.


I think you can have at least one of them - probably being released soon. But I have to warn you that he (Helland) is a bit injury prone, and would probably be out for most of the time after meeting some of the big defenders of League Two.

It would be interesting how much in guarantees are the board looking for because if that figure of £325,000 over several years is right, in the scheme of things that isn't much.


It could be £325,000 in one year. That's the commitment. Obviously if in one year we end up with drastically lower income than budgeted for and all that £325k is swallowed up, we don't know if he'll do it another year.

Bear in mind the turnover in 2018 was £3m that's a significant % of income.

But you're right, it would be unreasonable to expect the prospective buyers to guarantee more.

Quoted from KingstonMariner


To be fair to Fenty arry, he has provided guarantees totalling £325,000 for several years.

As we know, more has been taken out in terms of loan repayments in recent years.

So as I understand it JF and the current board want proof of funding going forward.

My question therefore is has JF and the current board guaranteed funding going forward if the club isn't sold? Also how much has JF and the current board put into the club in the past 3 years?

I think I heard Fenty is a guarantor though that hasn't been required as the Club making a profit. But like has been touched upon, with Fenty gone the Club wouldn't be paying him back 200k per annum and surely that extra in the coffers each term would go a long way to covering any rainy-day fund needed?

Quoted from Rik e B
Agreeing a sale price for Grimsby Town is not the stumbling block with regards to a proposed takeover of the club, according to John Fenty.

Of course, that has not proved to be the case.

Speaking as a guest on the Burnsy Show – on BBC Radio Humberside – the club’s majority shareholder revealed that, while a sale price is not the issue, further checks still have to be made by Town and the EFL.

Mr Fenty said: “It was agreed many, many months ago. There was an offer I accepted, so that’s all done and dusted. There is no stumbling block over that whatsoever.

“From the football club’s point of view, proof of funding and passing the fit and proper test,

Quoted from GrimRob


I may be naive but aren't there some people who just buy football clubs for the glory/buzz/ego/attention/love? I know without a new ground we'll probably struggle to stay in this division long-term, maybe Shutes wouldn't be interested without the commercial opportunities attached to it, but would it really stop every other potential owner?


I agree Rob. There are many owners who have clubs as a vanity project, some who can afford to and others that can’t. Some become bottomless pits whilst others thrive, some owners are lucky, others aren’t. What doesn’t help is our geographical location.

Well yes, but the club isn’t worth buying without the regeneration and commercial opportunities in the background. Mr Shutes is absolutely right to line his ducks up (or whatever the phrase is.)

Quoted from GollyGTFC


The Directors loans dropped at some point because MIke Parker changed £350,000 of loans into shares as per an agreement with Fenty. I think Fenty did the same for a much smaller amount.


Aye. Called up share capital:

Year   Amount         Change on previous year
2010: £510,700
2011: £1,506,900    +£996,200
2012: £2,058,500    +£551,600
2013: £2,059,100    +£600
2014: £2,112,400    +£53,300
2015: £2,173,800    +£61,400

Plan to Build New Ground at Docks.   (reply) Posted by: White_shorts
Date Posted: One hour ago
Quoted from golfer
Everton dock stadium to cost £half a billion


£500 million for a 50,000 capacity works out as £10,000 per seat. If Town's new ground has 15,000 seats, that could cost £150 million.

I don't know if infilling a dock is relatively cheap compared to the price of building a stadium once the foundation has settled.

Come on Kingston - ANY vision is better than what we have now!

It is not up to us who can or cannot take over - we will judge the new regime on their decisions and progess, or lack of, in due course.

Surely after the JF interview on RH the spotlight is now on Shutes, what more can JF do now ?
