Title: Jed
Post by: ronnie21 on Saturday, June 15, 2019, 16:24:31
Not sure if this has been reported but rumours from Yeovil seem to indicate that one Jed McCrory is leading the consortium about to take over Yeovil. If that is true it can only end in tears!

Not seen that mentioned. Only that he's left his post at the egg chasers and was going to work for Redditch council

That would be a short spell with Redditch council even by his standards. Yeovil are so close to the brink his presence would almost certainly mean the end of them if true.

Maybe he is acting as a consultant - with all his knowledge should be a walk in the park!!

This thread makes me laugh, I have no love for my local team Yeovil but I wouldn't wish Jed on anyone.

Ye gods, wouldn't wish that on anyone. Except possibly Franchise. Well, if it does happen, they'll be supplying plenty of fuel for the "It could actually be worse" thread

All I can find down here in the media is this from 2 days ago.

"Yeovil Town confirm takevoer agreement with mystery bidder"

http://www.ciderspace.co.uk/asp/news/news.asp?NewsItemId=29998&fbclid=IwAR2___g-dRS4NMqZUHmYhhR8jvAJ128AWh-0SmfiEj0Rwsda2Pg5VMlJKho

Yeovil Town have issued another statement concerning the ownership of the club and the first team management position. They have now confirmed that they have reached agreement with a group of people to take over the club, subject to the usual legal arrangements and ratification with the Football Association. The actual party is not named at this stage, leading to further speculation as to their identity.

The statement reads as follows:

"Yeovil Town Football Club is delighted to confirm that new owners of the major shareholding of HPSP Ltd have been identified, and are close to signing the required legal documents. The bidder selected has expressed a wish not to be publicly identified until the formalities are completed, but this development does now mean a first-team manager can be appointed early next week. The new owners will be interviewing managers early next week and after the selection process has been completed, an announcement will be made to the media, supporters, staff, and contracted players.."

The club quote Chairman John Fry as saying that having interviewed managers for the position in the last week, they now plan to allow the prospective owner to interview and choose their own manager:

"We have been working exceptionally hard to identify the right bid and this has been a challenging task as there were a number of legal and financial points to overcome.The deal we are announcing today is subject to the normal League and due diligence procedures, but all parties will now be working together to try and complete formalities as quickly as possible. Today’s news ends the recent period of uncertainty and what I am sure will be an exciting future for the club. I would like this opportunity to thank our supporters for their patience, during this challenging period."

Jeds name has popped up in conversations on their facebook group!

Here is an old message from the Yeovil chairman I found after the comments last week about their problems.

If true, this would be the fourth club he has “put a consortium together” for - us, Hereford, Worcester Warriors and Yeovil. What that entails, except for “come on laaadddzzz, let’s fackin do it, eh”, I’m not sure. What is more telling is that at all four he’s left others to it as soon as he was found out to be pointless (at best).

2 of the bidders have fallen by the way side and dropped out, its down to just one bidder now.

The fact that the club statement suggests that they have reached agreement with 'a group of people' wouldn't fill me with confidence?

The timing of his departure from Worcester seems too coincidental for him not to wind up at Yeovil. I suspect Redditch Council have no record of his new role there either. Poor fuckers. Let’s at least let them enjoy the honeymoon period where he comes across all matey (and rents himself a car that actually has an MOT to go to work in.)

Interesting post by a Yeovil fan on onefootballforum.

"Interesting twist, Jed McCrory has denied he's buying us. He did this by searching out one of our fans on Facebook after they mentioned him on Twitter, sent him a couple of private messages claiming it's all bollocks."

"Interesting twist, Jed McCrory has denied he's buying us. He did this by searching out one of our fans on Facebook after they mentioned him on Twitter, sent him a couple of private messages claiming it's all bollocks."

Quote
Former Swindon Town owner Jed McCrory has denied that he is part of a group purchasing Yeovil Town FC. The current Stratford Town owner, who was until earlier this month part of the set-up at Worcester Warriors Rugby Union club, has taken to Facebook to reply to one Glovers fan about the media reports linking him with the Huish Park ownership.

McCrory contacted the Glovers fan following saying with some sarcasm:

"I have been informed you would like to talk to me ref my atrocious record. I would be delighted to talk about my record with you, so please let me no (know) when you are available."

In a later reply, McCrory says:

"I'm not buying you're (your) football club. I have my own money but thanks for being concerned about me."

Another reply in the conversation says:

"Social media is full of people that write opinions, not facts. No club has ever gone pop under my remit ... The problem is you read social media and have an opinion without asking the person in kind. Therefore an opinion you take that isn't fact you spread and people that no (know) you start to believe ... You need to ask (journalist) Chris Spittles ... And you would be lucky to have me at Yeovil ... All the best next season, I truly would like Yeovil to get promoted next season ... all the best to you pal."

Despite some appalling grammar, the account appears to be genuine. McCrory's Facebook name of "GM McCrory" represents his full legal name of Gerard Martin McCrory. His timeline includes a December 2016 post relating to an FA Cup Second Round match between Luton Town and Solihull Moors - at that time a club he was a Director at. The account is also friends with a BBC Points West presenter that would have been working for the BBC around the time that McCrory was Swindon Town's owner.

This afternoon, we have also heard from an entirely different source, that McCrory is denying being the selected bidder that the club stated had been given preferred status last Friday. His denial would therefore cast doubt on Tuesday night's reports that he was part of the chosen consortium, giving a potential plot twist in terms of who will be buying the shares currently registered to Norman Hayward and John Fry under the Huish Park Stadium Partnership Limited company that is used to represent the ownership of the Yeovil Town FC companies.

From 1 fan...

If he does turn out to be our new owner, this would be a great start to an improvement in club-fans relationships .... denies being owner, blocks any fans who suggest otherwise

Possibly so, whatever the case he searches Twitter for mentions of himself (where he is not @'ed) and get very sniffy if they are critical.

Well I got threatened by him on Fb as well saying watch your back and all that crap, Tans and his brother really riled him up. A few months later out of blue got some bizarre further ones saying something like “Hi you alright, we still need this beer soon”. I’m guessing it was his attempt at baiting but I just ended up blocking him.
