Fearn Steps Down
Spencer Fearn, Vice chair and major shareholder has announced he is stepping down from the board of Stockport County.
This has been reported from the official site
I think it is accepted that Fearn was the main man behind the club and what this means is open to question, but knowing County I am going to plump for the words 'upheaval', 'crisis' and 'Fred Karno'.
This last paragraph is the type of appeal we have seen made with other clubs before the stuff really hits the fan.
'We would urge any local business people with an interest in this football club to come forward as soon as possible to see how they can assist us moving forward.'
I don't know about you but this send shivers down my spine. Only a couple of days ago we have a new chap (James Farge) join the board with an injection of capital.
And it was only two days ago we had the fortnightly boardroom update from Spencer (see see here which seemed to be upbeat. 'See you in two weeks for an update'.
Reading that update again though, can you see the appeals as an act of desperation?
Is the club now at the position where the fans are the only option? Or does the 'revolving door' rotate again for the next punter / group of punters come in and give it a go?
'Get yer wallets out County fans' may be the order of the day.
