Reports that #stfc have new owner seem a little confused. The Adver understands Lee Power will be added to the board and contribute funds...

Ex-footballer part of a consortium that tried to take over, surprise surprise, Luton.

Into sports publishing.

Was Chairman of Cambridge Utd - left in a huff to take over Rushden and Diamonds (did well there, then).

Seems another jobs for the boys merchant joining the STFC gravy train

All aboard!!!

Power worked as a football agent, before joining forces with Lenny Drake and setting up the sports publishing company CRE8.
In May 2003, Power was part of a consortium aiming to take over Luton Town. The proposed move was not well received by Luton fans, particularly as it involved sacking the popular manager Joe Kinnear.
He subsequently joined the board at Cambridge United and took over as chairman of the Conference National side in August 2006. In September 2006 he acted as caretaker manager following the dismissal of Cambridge manager Rob Newman and his assistant Tony Spearing.
On the 22 January 2008, on the same night that Cambridge United beat Droylsdon 50, Power resigned as chairman of the club, citing personal differences with fellow board members as the chief reason.[1] In April 2008, Power joined the board of Cambridge's Conference rivals Rushden and Diamonds.[2]
Power is also a racehorse owner.[3]

McCrory told the Adver: "Hes definitely not a new owner, hes contributing towards club and going to be huge part of club going forward."

Hmmm. Benefit of doubt but can't help but have a glance at where Luton Town are now in football terms.

Considering he never was actually with Luton, I don't see how that would be relevant.
