Weymouth Talk To Investor

Weymouth have rejected a bid from a consortium of local businessmen as they enter advanced talks with a Devon based businessman.

The unnamed businessman has entered the 'due dilligence' stage but there is no certainty of the deal being completed before the weekend. Manager Alan Lewer and coach Marcus Browning are running the rule over a number of trialists, but they are none the wiser whether they will be able to sign any players before Saturday's match.

In other financial news, Oxford chairman Kelvin Thomas has given an interview to the Oxford Mail. When asked about the current state of the club's finances he responds: "It would be very difficult to try and attract players and commercial partners if we stated exactly how much we were losing each week."

The FA may need to ask themselves questions over Northwich's former owner Mike Connett after he was made bankrupt this week - for the second time. He was previously made bankrupt in 1993, and only exited the bankruptcy in 2004 shortly before he passed the FA's 'fit and proper person' test.
