'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Argyle Fans Trust Issue Ownership Statement

The Interim Steering Committee of the Argyle Fans' Trust have issued the following statement regarding future ownership of Plymouth Argyle Football Club.

'The Interim Steering Committee (ISC) of the Argyle Fans' Trust notes with some alarm that the reported principal bidder for Plymouth Argyle Football Club, Kevin Heaney, who is backed, apparently, by money from Japan, has property speculation underpinning his attempt to secure a 'preferred bidder' status and a period of exclusivity with the Administrator, Brendan Guilfoyle.
The Trust is gravely concerned that Argyle may ultimately, once again, be owned by individuals who may not have the best interests of the football club and its supporters at their heart.

The Trust feels that the staff, players and fans, all of who have made significant sacrifices and overcome considerable difficulties in the last few months, do not deserve to face a future where the football club is dependent on further property speculation to survive.
Instead, the Trust much prefers an approach where the new owner of the Club works hand in hand with the City Council and the supporters, through the Trust, to rebuild Plymouth Argyle on a sustainable footing. This, of course, may involve an acceptable level of development in line with the Council's aspirations for the site and the immediate surrounding area but which ultimately allows Argyle to be run properly as a competitive football club that can once again rise up the Football League.'
