'Takeover bid' rejected

It was reported that an unknown consortium had bid £10 million to take control of the club.

Details are a little sketchy but it is believed that the offer included £5 million for John Wardle and David Makin to write off the loan amounts they have made to the club.

It is difficult to treat the story with too much seriousness at this stage with so little detail behind it, but the figures that have been suggested seem fanciful at the very least - and although it is believed Wardle and Makin may accept a suitable bid which will include the return of their loans, it is inconceivable to think an offer anywhere near this amount would be remotely considered by the board.
