Sponsor bids to buy Mansfield Town
CHAD website
STAGS sponsor Andy Perry confirmed this week that he is heading a three-man consortium bidding to buy the club.
But he stressed it was only a counter-bid to the supporters one from TEAM Mansfield.
"We are still 100 per cent behind the chairman," said Mr Perry. "If it wasn't for the TEAM Mansfield bid we wouldn't be looking into it.
"I feel a football club should be run from the head as well as the heart and supporters would just run it from the heart.
"I think the supporters route is the wrong one.
"The consortium is basically myself with two other people close to the club who are happy to back me and be part of the team.
"But no formal offer has been made. We have only talked about what route we might go down with it.
"But, like TEAM Mansfield, Keith Haslam has told us there are issues that make it the wrong time for the club to change hands and we will just carry on talking."
