Like everything else, there are often different threads to any particular story. I gave the club 10k to help with the outstanding payments in the Sean Devine transfer. In return i was told that club shares would be issued to cover the debt. To cut a long story short, it appears the shares were never registered and when the Trust took over they weren't (perhaps understandably) prepared to acknowledge the commitment. I have never pursued the matter, but just mention it to illustrate how convoluted these things can be. If the club is looking to repatriate some of these misplaced shares, perhaps, they might like to reconsider allocating a few to me...I'm not looking for any monetary gain.
