Sale Sharks' financial crisis

Kennedy backs Sale Sharks for another year

Sale Sharks owner and property tycoon Brian Kennedy has agreed to back the club financially for another year as they battle increasing losses.

The rugby union club, which has 100 staff and ground shares with Salford City Reds, has posted higher operating and pre-tax losses amid falling revenues despite a rise in attendances.

Newly filed annual accounts said the club had renegotiated its previous external funding, comprising a £4m loan and £2.5m overdraft, into one £5.5m consolidated loan which was repayable by 2015.

The £1m shortfall in this facility was provided by a related company and secured against property and personal guarantees by Kennedy.
The report added that Sale Sharks had loans due to "companies under common control" worth £5.1m at the end of its 2011/12 financial year and a further £1.6m to related company Cheshire Sports Promotions.

"The directors have considered the future profitability of the consolidated group and have prepared cash flow forecasts. Based on these, the consolidated group would have a shortfall in cash against the current funding arrangements," the report said.
"Consequently, the directors have received written confirmation from Mr Kennedy that he will provide additional funding for each month as required, in addition to the £5.5m external funding, for a minimum period of 12 months.

"This will enable the group and company to meet all of its working capital requirements and liabilities and enable the group and company to continue as a going concern.

"The company continues to benefit from its financial support of its shareholders without which we would be unable to prepare accounts on a going concern basis."

Revenue for the 2011/12 season fell from £7.7m to £7.5m and an operating loss of £563,000 doubled to £1.1m.
A 2010/11 pre-tax loss of £567,000 rose to £1.2m loss while the total attendance increased in the year to July 2012 from 120,594 to 126,409 people.

Sales Sharks currently sit in tenth place in the Aviva Premiership table. (There are only 11 in the league. Sale Sharks were bottom but have now moved one place up) The club had not responded to a request for further comment at the time of publication.

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
