Wycombe Wanderers chairman Trevor Stroud has reaffirmed the full support of the Club and Trust boards of directors for Rob Couhig’s proposed majority shareholding in the football club.
Ahead of the meeting of Legacy Members at Adams Park on Tuesday 15th October – at which point the vote to approve Mr Couhig’s proposal will open for a period of two weeks – Mr Stroud said: “The Trust board, as previously communicated, were in discussions with a number of interested parties in the summer, and after careful consideration, voted unanimously in favour of Rob Couhig’s proposal.
“Since reaching this decision in June, we have had no further contact with the alternative parties, nor have we received any formal offers other than Rob’s, and we have had no reason to doubt that our decision was the correct one.
“Our commitment to working with Rob and his team has only been strengthened over the past three months, as a result of the dedication, integrity and expertise displayed by him and his team which we believe will guide this club towards a more prosperous future.
“Rob has demonstrated his commitment from the outset, providing funds up front and agreeing to publicly enter into a period of engagement with our supporters, which no other party was willing to do at a time when the club was facing challenging financial circumstances.
“Without Rob’s financial contribution, the club would not be in position that it is now, and we remain fully focused on securing the approval of our Legacy Members for his proposal. We will continue to honour our obligations of confidentiality to all the parties who submitted proposals.”
