Yeovil chairman open to offers for club

Yeovil Town chairman John Fry has expressed his willingness to listen to any offers for the club.

Though not actively seeking the sale of the club, Fry said he would have to consider serious offers regarding his 46.5% share in the Glovers.

Yeovil co-owned by Fry and other board director Norman Hayward (45.5% shareholding) are looking to avoid back-to-back-to-back relegations that would see them drop out of the Football League 1,004 days after winning promotion to the Championship via the play-offs.

Fry stressed the guarantee of confidentiality should a suitor wish to acquire a stake in the Somerset club.

“Any interest in shares or the acquisition of the club comes to me first,” Fry told the Western Gazette.

“I would treat it in the strictest of confidence then, if it complies with the strict Football League acquisition rules and fit and proper directors’ test, it goes to the board.

“There would be a non-disclosure agreement put in place to protect the club and also the individual involved.

“It could well be someone from the supporters’ trust. Someone could be thinking ‘the chairman is looking for support or a way out of the door’ and if so they should come forward.

“They should contact myself or the company secretary and we would take it from there,” Fry said.
