What We Wanted

Late last night, a call was received by a member of the Mel Nurse consortium from Mr Petty. 45 Minutes of talk followed during which Tony Petty agreed to hand control of Swansea City over to the consortium that we know has been in place for around three months.

The consortium will be handed sight of the club’s finances within the course of the next few days and it is hoped that the deal will be concluded before the Macclesfield game at the Vetch on 19th January.

The precise ins and outs of the handover of the club were discussed last night but we will respect the confidentiality of the consortium and Tony Petty and not reveal them here on the site. The main gist of this is that within two weeks, Swansea City will be in the hands of the people that we wanted it to be.

Tony Petty has done the honourable thing and the consortium spokesman this morning thanked him for doing that.

Swansea City is finally going back to the people of Swansea – the future of the football club is in safe hands.

I would like to thank Mel Nurse and his consortium for the hard work that they have put in over the last three months and I am glad to see them rewarded for this.
