Hahaha poor bastards.

Banbury fans hate him. We hate him.

I like this part particulary:

'Jed comes to Moors with the reputation of a man who knows the game inside out with the experience and connections to restructure the business to meet the needs of a club looking to establish itself further in English football.

He is best known for his rebuilding at both Banbury United and Swindon Town, when both clubs were in turmoil on and off the pitch.

Before eventually moving on he left them in a financially healthy position with teams challenging for their respective league titles. '

Good luck is all i can say.

I was going to comment likewise, although the lack of a Roar kind of suggests he wasn't involved.

Hate to see any club suffer, do they have a forum where some truths can be provided - actually found it, looks like he already has the moderator in his pocket as stuff is being deleted. The fact that he calls him Ged McCrory suggests that he hasn't actually looked at the court papers in much detail! https://bsolihullmoors.runboard.com/t3196,offset=10

Looking at that forum that moderator would appear either terribly naive or a bit of a dick. A lot of the stuff about Jed isn't unsubstantiated, he was called a liar by a judge in court, a pretty damning summation of him. You'd never give someone with his track record the benefit of the doubt....

The first time fair enough you had a point to make and perhaps some of our fans needed to know but we are more than capable of re searching ourselves.

The complacency from some of the posters on the Solihull forum is worrying for them. Albeit no different from many of our own fans when the barrow boy and his dodgy mates turned up here "I'll judge him on what he does here", "Wait and see", "How can you asset strip a club with no assets?" etc etc. By the time you've "waited and seen", "judged him on his record", they've sold off your catering for the next 10 years and they're busy forcing Hereford out of existence while literally stripping physical assets from the walls of a locked ground.

Considering we know that Jed didn't have a pot to piss in, why spend another £100k on court fees, when all Jed would do is declare himself bankrupt, when he lost.

Very professional, I especially liked the attempted threatening messages he sent me on Facebook to tell myself and Tans to watch our backs. I can only assume their owner is already a bit dodgy, reading up it does sound like there is some kind or property deal going on surprise surprise. Sounds like JLR might want to buy their ground at some point in the future so a nice little opportunity to take some money and run.

for the benefit of their fans

life under Jed:
- looks like he might make a few improvements around the place.
- 'Engage' with the fans over social media, comes across as a bit of a bellend.
-Realise he is a bellend that's winging it -
-Spends lots of money the club doesn't really have thanks to selling star player for pennies and selling the catering contract on a 10 year to done external entity.

probably missed loads.

good luck with that monumental prick in at the club

I've done 45 supporting town and its a toss up between him and diamandis who has been the biggest piece of shit. If hid lips move he's lying. If he's writing g something down its false. If he's using actions they are misleading. The quicker you force him out the better you will be. Took us ages to remove the cancer that cunt put through the club.

Set up 'bar' in part of the stadium without proper authorisation.

Consortium directors soon melted away.

Dubious claim of trying to get Paolo Di Canio to change his mind and return to the club.

Links to EDL? I may be wrong here but I think this may have been a topic of conversation at some point.

Half-arsed attempt to retain a good player who had come to the end of his contract and who was keen to stay (McCormack), offering a one-year deal but then coming back with a two-year deal once it was too late.

See above re ownership of club.

He may well be a good thing for SMFC but I don't think too many Town fans would welcome him back at the County Ground.

Sold the catering off
For the next decade. We had loads (like on your forum) saying "Give him a chance, will judge him on what he does here" etc etc. They all laughed at the idea that Jed and his happy band of fuckwits were dodgy asset strippers, on the grounds that we had no assets worth selling. "How can you asset strip a club with no assets?" went the cry. Well, that's how - you sell the rights to catering for the next decade. Or, like Ridsdale at Cardiff, you mortgage your season ticket sales for the next 5 in return for cash now. Not suggesting either Ridsdale or Jed were asset stripping - both claimed they needed to forward sell these future assets in order to cover a financial black hole but this is one way you asset strip a club without obvious tangible assets.

Turned up at a trust meeting with a home made bank statement (allegedly)
Description I heard was that it looked like it had been drawn with crayons

Dodgy associates
One, allegedly, turned up to a meeting with what he claimed was a gun in his inside jacket pocket although witnesses dispute whether he was with Jed or keeping an eye on some dodgy backers' money. Certainly Jed didn't have a pot to piss in so would make sense that he needed someone to provide him with some liquidity and don't think anyone in Swindon can see him walking out of Lloyds with a successful loan application tucked in his pocket.

Leaving the allegedlies aside, it was Jed that brought Agombar of "completely fucked Hereford" fame into our club. And was still associated with him as that merry band took Hereford out of existence.

You need to be very very careful of Jed. But even more scared of the shits he's fronting for. He's poision.

There was the lies about being under an embargo for a debt from the 1950's.

The supporters club were taken in by him, they had a sit down with the trust, some answers required written replies, he replied about 2 weeks later with one word answers. The bloke turned up to home games with a rented Bentley with reg plates from an Alpha Romeo (this has to be confirmed)

It's all lies, nothing good will ever come from any actions from Jed.

He'll con your more gullible fans with rousing 'C'mooooon!' and 'Yeeeeeessss!' tweets at 5am on a matchday as if to give the impression he'd been sitting in a dark room since Thursday holding his breath with the anticipation of it all.

He's a small time local property developer with big, dreamy aspirations but sadly little - either in the way of business acumen or financial backing - to support them.  Way out of his depth at STFC, as I suspect he will be also at Solihull.  Keep your eyes open.

I know a few people who have come across him and the phrase that stuck was "champagne lifestyle with lemonade funds". He will try to use your club (and a free bar) to further himself and his ego. When he came here he hired a Bentley for a couple of weeks and put his private plate on it to try and make out he was the real deal, the plates now on a £500 Alfa.... He would appear obsessed with creating this image of 'Jed the football chairman'.

To begin with he'll try and play the man of the people card, then if people start to question him he will make himself out to be the victim and then if you still don't fall for his bullshit he'll try and threaten you with idle threats of violence. Those are the 3 stages of Jed.

Simply put he is a liar and everything he did here was a lie. The transfer embargo was a lie, the league never confirmed we were under one, he just didn't have any funds and made up shit like a 1950's debt (we've been in admin twice so that was clearly bollocks). My belief is he ended up using the early renewals of the next seasons season ticket money to keep going until Power decided injected his own money and decided he needed to get rid of Jed. The 'great catering deal' was huge lie and has properly stitched us up, no idea what happened to the money if there actually was any. The "guaranteed money from the concerts" was a lie and ended up costing the club money. He claimed to have put in planning permission for a roof on the Stratton Bank, that was a lie and never happened. He did some stuff to the ground that he never paid for and did on the cheap (substandard floodlight bulbs, new seats, electronic advertisement boards, a shit mobile Big screen van). I believe he even showed some people a ground development drawing that he had drawn himself. He installed a half arsed bar in the Townend without getting a licence. It all culminated in a high court judge calling him a liar in court and that quote is on public record.

As well as us Banbury and Hereford (he was heavily involved in their demise) he tried to get involved at Cheltenham, they refused his offer and pretty much laughed him out of the building, he also made up some crap about having £5 million to buy Barnsley, surprisingly that all fell away as well. If you decide to give him the benefit of the doubt then you are in all sorts of trouble!

Thing is they'll get all the facts and links by googling his name as court cases, Hereford, Cheltenham etc pop up pretty much instantly. It's the bullshit he came out with when not on record that really showed his true colours and unfortunately most of that was obtained away from the media.
The fact that no one at any of his previous clubs has anything good to say about him should speak volumes. Shame he deleted his Twitter account as that would have been pretty damning as well.

in the interests of balance, the fuckwit did employ someone that sorted our online ticket sales system.

that's literally the only positive I can think of..
The same system as pretty much every FL club uses, not sure it would have taken much effort to hand it all over to Ticketmaster.

But yes, it does work quite well

The online ticketing is just a URL redirect for ticketmaster. Most clubs have a site, it's the 'Player' of the football club ticket world.

Thanks for all this. I was looking for your personal responses and summaries of his time at the club as much as anything else; that is more useful than Google at this stage as I'm trying to get a measure of his reputation.

Just don't trust the smug mockney mug.

He will promise you the world and deliver nothing.

Have to say I did think early in that he had the right intentions but was just useless.
Time proved that the first part of that statement easy ever true.

That said there are still some of our more special fans who would rather have this liar back than have Power in charge :(

He promised the world, exactly what our fans wanted to hear but they were hollow words in the end with no financial backing to put them into action.

And the second point you make about wanting him back is very sad but true.

I know its a ticketmaster skin, but it was still a lot better than we had before. Didn't realise that it was a league-wide deal like the OS/player.

I'm not defending the twat anyway.

Turned up at a trust meeting with a home made bank statement (allegedly)

As I was one of only two people who saw this piece of paper which allegedly said he had £1.5m in a bank account.

As the document had a signature on it, which could only be his, and it had no bank stamp, nor was it on bank paperwork, I can only suggest he knocked it up that afternoon, considering we all know that the money he helped fund the club with at day 1, was money from Power.

There was also talk that he was asking for £5m for the club, but when it was announced that the Trust had got an ACV on the CG, the people who were interested disappeared, so I would suggest he was telling potential buyers that he owed the CG and not the council.

This is our noted from the meeting with Jed in April 2013 (was it only 3 and a half years ago)

http://www.truststfc.com/trust-stfc-swindon-supporters-club-meeting-with-jed-mccrory/

We agreed with Murrell that the Trust and BBC Wilts would record the meeting, and the Trust was going to put it on our website in full, only to be told by Jed that he didn't want to be recorded just in case he was 'misquoted'.

Thanks for all this. I was looking for your personal responses and summaries of his time at the club as much as anything else; that is more useful than Google at this stage as I'm trying to get a measure of his reputation.

My 2 penneth (or should we say a quid, as that's what he bought the club for.)

I got to know Jed reasonably well while he was here. He offered me a job (that at the time I wasn't completely qualified for, I might add.) That was his MO, I suppose - act personable and people will overlook the face you don't know what the f**k you're doing. It's at this stage where I think people started to wonder if his willingness to interact with fans was really because he's a 'man of the people', if it was just amateur naïveté, or if a genuine way to obfuscate his malicious intentions. I personally think it was a mixture of the three.

He is not a clever man. Not only is his spelling and grammar atrocious (which is fine of itself really) he used to get his own name wrong quite a lot. I can vouch for tans who was 'threatened' (if you can call it that) as I saw him 'av a word with a few people in the most juvenile way possible, always online. Outside of that he got on great with fans who think the requisite skills for owning a football club involve 'buying a pint'. Basically just imagine your clubs daftest fan, then imagine him being in charge.

But that's the kind bit. The sinister bit is all the bullshit he gave to the media, and the bailiffs. Stuff that's already been mentioned: yeah, of course that bill will be paid. Yep, we can afford that.  Yeah, we've paid up for that, we've got permission for it. NONE of these things were true.

You can think of him as a sophisticated conman or an idiot delboy, but the result is the same. If anything positive happens (and that would be a miracle) it would be for the benefit of him and his cronies. And that's another issue - watch out for his 'connections' and the contacts he brings in.

In short, I'd advise you not to let him anywhere near you, but I guess it's too late. But if there's any advice you need or support on getting him out of your club, I can assure you this STFC fan (if not many others) will have your back!

You may be right, although he's still listed on their website:

Who's Who

Board of Directors: Trevor Stevens (Chairman), Simon Hawker, Steve Shipway, Lucas Markou, Gerard Mccoy

And still struggling to spell his own name :)

That's the holding company that owns the Football club, not the club itself. IIRC he was never on the board of the HC, just the football club. I'd look it up, but can't be arsed :)
