Nurse Serves Writ

Now we’re up and running, Mel Nurse served this afternoon a writ on Tony Petty for full and immediate repayment of the £801k debt that was bought by Nurse last week from former club owners Ninth Floor.

The hearing for the writ will take place in Swansea next Tuesday (13th November) and we await the outcome of that.

Mel bought the debt last week, after resigning his directorship of Swansea City and also secured the purchase of the car park and club shop from 9th Floor as well. This is now putting him in a stronger position and Petty very much on the back foot.

Petty desperately over the course of the weekend, tried to diss Mel Nurse on live radio but time appears to be running out from the Aussie based Cockney and maybe we are well on the way to winning the battle to get the club back into the hands of someone who cares.

Last Saturday, Petty was subjected to a torrent of abuse from the home crowd during the game at the game with Rushden and Diamonds, a game which saw former owner Mike Lewis assaulted behind the centre stand after the game.

Petty has always maintained that he had the best interests of Swansea City at heart but there is no way back for him now, he has set his stall out and the fans have reacted to him in the way that they always will.

Mel Nurse now seems to hold all the vital cards and the serving of this writ is the first of those that he is playing. Mr Petty, the end is nigh………..
