I suspect a lot of people will say oh that was always going to happen.
This time I’ll suggest that not to be the case, this is the first time I believe John has put the ground up for sale? And he has since doing that, maintained his wish to retire.
During our ongoing efforts to purchase the ground John has been supportive helping out where possible with the price and with financial bodies to raise finance for the shortfall.
I think it’s safe to say JR divides opinion with his forthright views; however we owe him our gratitude as without Filtrona our team was in a desperate position.
