Plymouth Albion Dismiss Takeover Rumors

The Chairman of Plymouth Albion RFC has dismissed rumours the club could be taken over by two former players. The Herald reported that shareholders at Plymouth Albion were recently informed that the club had two offers - to sell majority stakes to two investors or hand the lease at their Brickfields ground over to University Of Plymouth in exchange for sponsorship. Bruce Priday and David Venables are rumoured to have made an offer which would see them become majority shareholders at the club. club has already passed a resolution that would allow it to alter its shareholder model, opening the door for a majority shareholder to take over. Graham Stirling, Chairman of Plymouth Albion, said that the Board had been trying to put the club on a secure financial footing for quite some time but said that did not involve selling to ex-players Priday and Venables. Stirling said, "I know the two gentleman well but it is not correct - there is nothing on the table for them to come to buy the club. That would be a decision for the shareholders to take. I can't imagine that the shareholders want to see Albion fall into the hands of one or two individuals. We want to remain a shareholder-controlled club." Sources close to the club informed The Herald that early discussions had taken place between the club and University Of Plymouth about the lease at the Brickfields ground, where Albion plays their home matches. Stirling said that the club had a successful partnership with the university and was looking to further and develop that relationship. However, Stirling was not able to confirm if the university had looked to buy the freehold or, alternatively, take on the Brickfields lease. A spokeswoman for Plymouth City Council said that councillors had not considered any proposals to sell the Brickfields site or to make any changes to our leisure management arrangements. University of Plymouth were contacted by The Herald but did not provide a comment. Priday and Venables were also unavailable for comment to The Herald.
