Dear John,

The Stand was purchased by the Football Club many years ago. Since then Football Club has gone through many changes and an argument could be made that it has reverted to the landlord although we take the view that since it was purchased by a tenant it should remain as a tenant’s fixture. Aside from this, I understand that the Stand is not being sold but gifted to Hungerford and is an arrangement between Hungerford and Newbury FC. WBC is satisfied that the outgoing tenant is able to come to such an arrangement in relation to the Stand. We also take the view that this arrangement best serves the wider community and puts the stand to good use.

I hope that clarifies our position.

Kind regards

Nick
