Wednesdayite Say Yes To Sheard

Confirmed following the Wednesdayite meeting last night - the fans group has emphatically voted in favour of selling its shares to the Geoff Sheard led consortium.

In a two-part poll, a massive 97.4% of members who voted decided to change the Wednesdayite constitution to allow their shares to be sold. 92.1% of them then followed that up by choosing to offer those shares to Geoff Sheard. The overall turnout was greater than 77%.

Wednesdayite chairman Darryl Keys said 'We are delighted that our members have voted in great numbers on such an important issue and emphatically supported our recommendation. I hope this sends a resounding message to the club, its Directors and the fan base at large that Wednesdayite has never been a stumbling block to any investor and that we have always recognised that at the appropriate time our shareholding had to play its part in securing a better and more successful future for the club.'

He went on to confirm that 'Wednesdayite will now formally write to Sheard advising him of the outcome of the ballot and to see if he still wishes to proceed with the acquisition of Wednesdayite's shares in the light of progress made with the other main shareholders and his stated intention to acquire an initial 29.9% holding.'

i dont think we can complain about a 92% vote for yes dbblue, i respect the 8% that wanted to keep the shares (for now), although i personally voted yes to change the rules and yes on the sheard bid
