No response over Blackpool bid

BST recently outlined its plans for a £16million leveraged bid to assume control of the Seasiders, a move which would have still left the Oystons with several assets connected to Bloomfield Road.

However, having set a July 21 deadline to respond, BST is still yet to receive any reply from the powers that be.

“We’ve had no response from the Oyston family at all,” BST secretary Kevin Boroduwicz said.

“It doesn’t surprise us a great deal at all; they haven’t replied to any of our recent correspondence.

“We weren’t hugely optimistic but we were hopeful they were would acknowledge it in the circumstances.”

Although the deadline has passed, the offer remains on the table and BST has not been deterred by the Oystons’ reluctance to acknowledge its first offer.

“We will always be interested in owning the club – either by ourselves or in contention with others,” Boroduwicz added.

“It is our intention to own part of the club but the Oystons need to work with us.

“We’ve got quite a few things to do – we will be looking at consortia, different approaches – this will likely not be the last of the interest we show in the club. We care too much about the club.”

The fans’ deep-seated dismay at the handling of Blackpool shows no sign of abating either, with a recent pitch-invasion against Lancaster forcing that friendly to be abandoned and prompting Morecambe to cancel another pre-season fixture amid fears of similar scenes.

The Seasiders begin their first campaign under new boss Neil McDonald in 17 days, but chairman Karl Oyston will still be banned when the season starts following his foul-mouthed text-message exchange with a supporter last year.
