IN the final part of the Daily Echo’s ‘Saints – The Untold Series’ series looking at the last six years at St Mary’s, here we take a look at the much talked about Plan B, whose failure to be fully implemented helped increase the club’s financial misery.
IT was the supposed dawn of a new era, but it quickly turned into a nightmare for Saints. Michael Wilde’s regime created a feelgood factor after ousting Rupert Lowe in the summer of 2006, but off the field the honeymoon period didn’t last long.
FORMER Saints chairman Leon Crouch today tells the Daily Echo how he twice offered Rupert Lowe and Michael Wilde the opportunity to help save the club – certainly from administration and possibly from relegation to the third division. Crouch reveals his proposals that were turned down.
AFTER Rupert Lowe, Michael Wilde and Leon Crouch had asked for more information on the SISU offer before deciding whether to accept it, Saints’ financial advisors sent the trio of major shareholders a letter outlining whey they should support SISU. That letter is reprinted here.
