Following my previous calls for more transparency regarding the then proposed takeover of Newcastle United Football Club, I am glad the see that the matter is now resolved.
The lack of transparency surrounding the takeover process was of great concern to both myself and many constituents in Newcastle East. While this process may have been a lengthy and sometimes frustrating one, a decision finally being reached is welcome news.
After an era where many fans felt the club stagnated, supporters now have cause for optimism that the club will move forward. I am encouraged by the new ownerships pledge to strengthen ties with local communities, businesses and invest in the club itself, it’s training facilities and academy.
