Swann Now Free To Invest

Swann Now Free To Invest

Potential future chairman Peter Swann is now free to move forward with Scunthorpe as he has re-allocated his shares in Gainsborough.

Speaking to the Scunthorpe Telegraph Swann reiterated his desire to become chairman of the club and he's hoping he will be accepted to the board as a director at the meeting scheduled to take place towards the end of May.

'I'm not going to comment on the board of directors or the issues involving Dennis Hobson, as I believe they have to sort their issues out, although I have met with both parties. Last Friday I resigned as a director at Trinity and my shares have been allocated elsewhere, leaving me free to join Scunthorpe. I met with Dennis and discussed my position with the directors. As far as I'm concerned nothing has changed regarding the initial statement about my appointment, which included being asked to become chairman in the very near future.'

Hopefully there will be some clarity, and Brian Laws especially can move forward with his plans for the coming campaign.
