Now confirmed by our owner that he will no longer be funding the club and that we are surviving purely on any money from our FA Cup run.

That's crazy, you must have used that money up already?

Anxious watching of the draw tomorrow then. Shame, as I thought Yeovil looked good and there seemed a decent atmosphere around the place

It was a good atmosphere but it was a shame how few people turned up last night. A number of our fans are now having a go at the Glovers Trust for not revealing this news earlier in the week, saying ot may have made more people go to the game.

Yes, there's zero money in the pot and hasn't been for a long time. It really is hand to mouth. The problem is our owner didn't buy the club with his own money as he hasn't got any, he took out several loans. He's relied on those and government handouts to get us to this point. If we get anything other than an EPL team and it's on tv then we're screwed. As Paul Sturrock said in a post-match interview a few years back "We're fucked"

Scott Priestnall...

Multiple entries on Companies house.
Involved with lots of dissolved companies.
Connections to sports agents.
Connections to asset strippers.
Mates with Jed McCrory.

This was all known since 2019, he's basically a giant red flag.

You can't be relying on getting a good cup draw to keeps the lights on, that's crazy, no doubt this crook in charge will pocket it anyway; we've been there more than once! Hopefully you can get him out and get some stability

You're right it is crazy, unfortunately he's holding all the cards. He says he will sell but only to the right bidder - that means whoever will meet his apparently iver-inflated valuation. The rumours are there are two potential buyers who have been in talks for a few months now. There was a consortium of local business people of whom several are fans, but that seems to have died down, then there is the other current Director of the club who no-one trusts. The other party is Julian Jenkins who used to be at Cardiff, he's the one the fans want but so far nothing's happened. It really doesn't look good.

Yep, we all knew he was bad news from the start but frustratingly he's the one our previous owners sold to. His history is bizarre and very alarming.

Wasn’t sure where to put this but sad news .
Only 38.


Posting this as Marvin was my friend. I met him when I was a volunteer at Aldershot, he was just the nicest bloke. In his time with the Shots we had some laughs, he was great to be around and appreciated the efforts of all those who helped out around the club, and more than once went out of his way to make us feel as big a part of the team as the players. He started FEK whilst at the Shots and many a time I helped him shift big boxes of clobber from his car. To see him succeed in the clothing business after all the early stick and opposition he took was superb, and reflected his passion and personality. I only spoke with him last week and I’m gutted I won’t be able to again.
So tonight, raise your FEK snapbacks to Marvelous Marvin Morgan. RIP mate.

Grimsby fans, I can see potential in our game on Tuesday 25th January being moved forward to the 8th January. With Boreham Wood winning against St. Albans, we will both be without a league game between the 2nd (3rd for you) and 22nd January so it does make sense to move it.

Hopefully it is indeed moves as it would make a lot of sense.

what is CV Leisure? The thing that has changed on those accounts is the tangible assets, they've just been taken off the accounts. Not knowing enough about the Yeovil owner or his company/companies, he could have just transferred a tangible asset, eg some buildings, or a shit load of cash, to another company, or him personally.
The company would then have to re-submit accounts.
The original profit was only because of the 'tangible assets' so the actual turnover of the company was always a loss.
