Re: What is clear....

Where would a conflict of interest be? Really don't see that - it was an indoor football complex used by kids, clubs, adult teams and the whole shooting match. Assuming you mean a conflict of interest with DFC's academy or holiday clubs? Really don't see how this would be. He runs an academy, its k...

Closed due to increasing rents at the george reynolds industrial estate
Or a conflict of interest with his new employers?
If the rent goes up then put the prices up to help cover the difference would have been a more straightforward option than closure, if thats all the issue was.

If businesses are run badly, they fold. I don’t see why football clubs should be exempt from this.
Perhaps if this was to happen then we would see football clubs get their houses in order instead of trading virtually insolvent as most clubs seem to do these days.

It got the desired reaction and he ended up extending his Darl...
