Heís chairman at Stratford Town now.

They played Banbury at Stratford in the FA cup first round and changed the game from saturday to tuesday on Ďpolice adviceí

Played the tuesday and there was ONE police officer there.

He is universally hated by Banbury supporters too

Oh Jed and his emotional urges...

Isn't he doing something at Yeovil as well?

He does have fingers in the Yeovil pie, the same Yeovil that were forced into selling their ground in the Summer back to the local council for £2.8m and renting it back just to stay alive.

A few mentions in this sorry tale.

My one worry about us owning the CG (and a reason for the Trust to have as large a share as possible) is the risk of attracting events like this.

It cannot possibly be coincidence that Scott Priestnall, Chair of Yeovil, was a member of Jed's consortium that took over Worcester.

Jed does seem to specialise in the £1 purchase, a short stay and then subsequent chaos! Hopefully the fall out from this, and national reporting finally, will bring matters to a head.

It is indeed not just a coincidence.

Really interesting read.
Is JD really that smart or just a front man? Must be a front man.
Next question must be does Yeovil own their ground? Looking at their current league position they must be close to being next
Why then were Swindon possible targets as there were no real assets or am I missing something here?

Does make you wonder how long this type of thing has been going on.
On a far different scale could at Elm Park Reading Manor Ground Poxford also be Upton Park Highbury and Spurs. The list be huge. Middleboro Roker Park and most recently Griffin park.

Before someone points out the obvious
Sunderland was Roker Park and Middlesboro Ayresome park.
