Lennox rules out takeover of Cork City

Former Cork City chairman Brian Lennox has today denied reports that he is part of a consortium attempting to take over of the club.

Speculation as to Cork City’s future has grown over the past few days as a result of supporters’ trust FORAS’s (Friends of the Rebel Army Society) decision to call an EGM of their own members.

They are unhappy with their current role within the club and they want to canvass the views of their members before making their next move in relation to the support they are prepared to offer City.

Brian Lennox, owner from 2002 until 2007, was linked by speculation yesterday with a return to the club as part of a group in line to take over, possibly in conjunction with FORAS.

However, he denied those rumours.

“There is no truth to the story,” Lennox said.
