Ex-chairman, current landlord and obnoxious twat David Lloyd is threatening City with legal action if they don’t stump up cash for rent arrears that have accrued on Boothferry Park. Lloyd, who was recently handed his P45 by the Lawn Tennis Association (ho ho), claims City now owe him £68,000 in back pay and he is willing to take court action to reclaim the sum.
In response, Chairman Nick Buchanan (who you’ll remember promised to ‘pump’ £500,000 into the club not so long ago) says the board are in talks with Lloyd to buy the Ark from him and that the money owed will be part of the deal if the sale goes ahead. What a load of crap! As if you wouldn’t be expected to keep up rent payments until you actually buy the property.
