    I would have to agree with what sbgawa has said above. Preston are a well run club and you have to think he will approach Cork City the way he does any business venture.

    This carry-on makes the club seem really tinpot and I can understand the board's anger. Absolutely no need for this consortium to do it this way (rather than, say, sponsoring or donating to the club directly) unless they're out to cause mischief. As an aside, if I recall correctly this lad Wycherley's time in charge coincided directly with the club's speedy transition from double-winners to basket case.

  4. Thanks From:

    I can't see UEFA/FIFA being happy with arrangements like this either. Otherwise fans at every club would be at it to get round salary caps, spending limits etc.

    So a consortium of supporters is in some way challenging a club that is owned and run by a consortium of supporters!? Did the gift made to secure the player come in a brown envelope by any chance. The club have done the right thing by making a statement regardless of Groovemoor as it would have looked very bad if they said nothing and then came out in the wash. Probably would have had to have the FAI involved if it was a football related payment to the player that could have looked like it was made off the books, initially anyway. I'm sure players would have to inform their club of work outside the club, P/T players or not? Surely fundraising money should go to the club, while the fundraisers shouldnt really be able to dictate to a club how that money is spent it could have been arranged in an agreeable way rather than looking like there is schism developing.

    Bar the call option agreement, what is the "contractual arrangement with Grovemoor Ltd, and we will be conducting our business in the proper manner by seeing out that arrangement. Bar other potential issues with such a payment how is Grovemoor influencing things at CCFC after the sale of the club was put on hold over Turners Cross? It sound a bit odd in itself. (Agreeing not to increase debts further I suppose is reasonable if still intending to by the club but still would be someone who doesnt have a stake in the club dictating how the club is operating?).
