Nuneaton Borough Supporters Co-Operative would like to publicly thank Lee Thorn for speaking to Supporters’ Direct yesterday.
We would like to clarify that if the Co-Operative were to enter a formal process with Mr Thorn in order to purchase the football club for the benefit of the community, it would be essential for a initial financial analysis of the football club facilitated through Supporters’ Direct to be completed before any financial commitments are made. This information would be critical for the Co-Operative and the wider community to raise capital through community shares and sponsorship.
We are also aware that Mr Thorn made reference in the statement to the Football Club’s website and in conversations with Supporters’ Direct that there are ‘other options’ available to him. If these other options secure the future of Nuneaton Borough, playing football in Nuneaton, we would not stand in the way of this, and would look to forge a positive relationship with the new ownership as soon as possible.
