DANISH consortium Chester Projekt resurfaced yesterday afternoon, with a new name, to claim that Chester City would be theirs within three weeks, writes ALEC DOYLE.
Palle Rasmussen spoke to The Chronicle to say that the group, now known as Fodboldselskabet af 06-03-2010 Holding A/S (The Football Company), intended to apply for the Blues’ FA licence within 21 days of the club being wound up and that they had support from consortium backers who were local to Chester.
“We always had two options, the Vaughans and the option we are going down now,” said Rasmussen.
“The Vaughans are not involved in our plans now at all. They have had no contact with us for some time. We asked them to show us documents proving the £485,000 loan had been made and where the money had been spent before we would make an official bid, but they stalled and never came up with it.
“This is Plan B coming to life. We still want to involve CFU deeply in the club.
“The good news is that the bankruptcy means once we start up a new club, it will be debt free.
“Apart from this, we no longer have a deadline to live up to.”
