What (allegedly) happened was...
These are the events (as I'm led to believe):
The investors paid off
the mortgages Heaney raised against the club following Lloyds' 'calling in' of
Other debts have also been settled by the investment company.
A substantial offer was (and still is) on the table from the investors
for Heaney to accept and leave the Club.
Heaney accepted this offer.
As part of the agreement, Heaney's shares in the club were to be signed
over to the investment company.
They, in turn, were happy to sign them
over to Mark Woolcock.
Heaney had issues with this and wanted them to be
assigned to Webb (presumably so he could still play puppet master).
Investment company weren't happy with this (understandably!) and so
compromise was reached whereby Mark Woolcock & Webb would hold the shares
Heaney resigned as a Director on Friday 21st July, leaving Mark
Woolcock as the sole Director.
Mark Woolcock formed an Executive
Committee to take the Club forward.
Heaney, on discovering this (through
Webb) then suspended Mark Woolcock on Wednesday 25th July.
27th July Webb (presumably bored at the lack of action at Treyew Road) decides
to set fire to all the crap he's 'fly-tipped' behind the Carlsberg Stand - which
comprises of asbestos sheeting - setting the back of the stand alight in the
process. tries to cover the mess with old 'TCFC - Truck Stop' signs. Could be
the reason for the players' sudden illness this Tuesday! Wink
serious business: Webb (NOT a Director) then formed another Committee on Monday
30th July. During this meeting he stated that he had told all the members of the
Executive Committee that they had been stood down. In fact, he had not
communicated this to them, and hadn't even contacted all 6 of them.
Heaney now refuses to relinquish his share in the Club.
tells the Management & players on 2nd August that Heaney "would rather see
the Club in Step 7 than give up his share in the club."
submit league registrations, but also submit 14 days notice to the Club.
If outstanding monies are not paid by 10pm Thursday 10th August then
players will exercise their right to leave the Club.
