RUFC - Court Case Re-Visited
It seems that the court case being kicked out yesterday, meaning, in effect, that the club lost, doesn't seemed to have stopped them from fighting on.
Giles Brearly, financial director, told The Advertiser that losing was only a technicality and that there was a 'Plan B' in place.
'There is another route we can go down,' he said, 'we just prefered to go down the High Court road.'
The club wanted an agreement, made while Millers 05 were in charge, giving ownership back to the Booth family, to be scrapped. It was claimed that Millmoor was undervalued in the deal and the deal was a sham. But the Court threw out the Millers case yesterday saying that there was no real prospect of a court finding that this had happened.
The club asked for leave to appeal, but this was denied.
The directors had hoped that victory yesterday would see them claim back ownership of the ground - which is a key factor in future plans.
'We will fight on,' said Mr Brearley
