The Club wishes to assure all supporters, members of the local community and stakeholders that everything possible is being done to save the Club from insolvency by ensuring we can engage with genuinely interested parties in equity ownership to find a long term solution for the club.
Naturally, it is extremely disappointing that interest shown to date has not come to fruition. However, the Club understands that there has been significant interest to date, and there have been further and new expressions of interest.
What is clear is that if timescales were permitting there is little doubt that an iconic Club such as Hartlepool United FC would have little difficulty attracting a new equity owner, who is looking to invest in and engage in owning a football club for the long term.
There have been several expressions of interest of some people willing to join together as part of a consortium, but may not have known others to join in with. With this in mind therefore we would urge anyone that is thinking along these lines that they should contact the solicitor with their appetite for equity investment and proof of funds for that level.
Pending further announcements the Club will not be making any further specific comments at this time and all potential equity investor enquiries can be directed to Geoff Cunningham at Walker Morris – Geoff.firstname.lastname@example.org who is representing the current owner, Sage Investments.
