Bulls News understands that, while the investors have 'started the process of making payments to football creditors', as announced three days ago, no money has actually been transferred. Several players and staff took to social media yesterday to express their frustration at delays.
Fans are calling for clarity from the investors. The latest official statement last night stated that the group had taken on a 'major shareholding' in the club, failing to mention David Keyte at all.
Keyte appears to have been cut out of the picture at Edgar Street despite apparently remaining as Chairman. He denied that a trial game had been arranged only for the announcement to appear on the official site yesterday afternoon, while his claims that Peter Beadle was in the frame for the manager's job were also proven false.
The club appears to have been sold to new owners, but the fans do not know who wields the power or who will be representing the club at Monday's Court hearing.
The fears amongst the fans are that the investors are property speculators, keen only on the 4.5 acres of land that make up the Edgar Street site.
Having paid no money so far they could conceivably transfer the two development pieces of the site from the club to themselves, and disappear into the sunset within a week with their names and faces unknown to the fans of the club - leaving David Keyte, and the rest of the board, to face the full wrath of the fans and the authorities over the demise of a 90 year old football club.
Or they could be the greatest thing that is about to happen to this club, and it is mere misfortune that has delayed proceedings. They may sort this mess out, have ambitious plans for the stadium and club, and fund the growth of the Bulls into a proud force once again.
It is time for our investors, and David Keyte and the board, to come clean and state the facts. They are the custodians of this club and must be accountable to the fans.
No more secrets.
