Lewis Issues Statement From The Club

Swansea City have issued a statement following on from this morning's news that Mike Lewis has taken over the club from 9th Floor and is in effect the club's new chairman.
A press conference will be held by the club early next week to explain their plans for the Club, and outline details of current negotiations with potential new investors and how the club plans to attract further investors.
According to the official Swansea site, Lewis's statement reads as follows
" At this stage my role is purely that of a custodian. I have no interest in retaining my new shareholding, other than to formally allow it to be apportioned to new investors. This has been necessary to conclude ongoing negotiations and I expect to be able to give details of these by the early part of next week. These plans also include provision for a Supporters Trust initiative."
There is a glimmer of hope in this statement in that Steve Hamer has been waiting in the wings to buy the club and it is a known fact that McClure would not deal directly with Hamer. By passing the shareholding to Lewis, Hamer could now step in. I do not pretend to say that he is the saviour that we would like but he has to be an improvement on what we had.
An Extraordinary General Meeting of the club's shareholders has been called for August 1 to allow the legalities of the new owners to be put into place.
This again could suggest that we will have a second set of new owners by that date and the smart money could well now be on former chairman Steve Hamer returning to the fold.
Whatever, it could be interesting or indeed worrying times ahead.
