IMRAAN Ladak has described reports naming George Rolls as
Kettering Towns new investor as inaccurate.
Rolls, whose wife Amanda owns the majority shareholding in
Weymouth FC, admitted last month to having held talks with
the Pop-pies chairman but insisted that no takeover
of the troubled club was ever going to materialise.
Despite that admission, speculation linking the Cambridge-based
businessman with the Conference club has failed to cease with
Ladak the latest player in the ongoing saga to play down the
The Kettering chief said: Clearly there has been a
lot of speculation but the reports that appeared on Sunday
contained a lot of inaccuracies, which was disappointing.
Rolls responded to those reports by claiming his family has
no intentions of leaving Weymouth any time soon.
He is also understood to have told Terras director
Nigel Biddlecombe that he is not looking to buy Kettering.
Meanwhile, on the pitch, Weymouth drew 2-2 with Portland
United in a friendly at the Bob Lucas Stadium last night.
Ollie Tribe netted at both ends and trialist Mark Ford was
also on target as the Terras came from behind twice after
Callum Ross-Jennins had given the Blues a half-time lead.
Weymouth boss Brendon King said: James Coutts got 90
minutes under his belt and Ben Joyce and Mark Ford both looked
lively it was a good workout and a decent display."
