A businessman has abandoned plans to invest in Carlisle United after the club terminated talks over his proposed takeover.
Andrew Lapping was heading a consortium planning to put nearly £1.3million into the club but today Chairman Andrew Jenkins said talks had ended as Mr Lapping's proposals 'didn't stand up to scrutiny.'
In response Mr Lapping said he'd been left with no option but to step away from the takeover and that he 'didn't need the grief anymore.'
“For the last 12 months of my life I’ve worked diligently to put a plan in place which would provide initial financial investment for Carlisle United and a long-term structure and strategy to ensure the club was well-placed to pursue future success.
“My intention was simply to help the club in the short-term and ensure there was a longer-term plan in place. Then I would step back and let the club move forward. I had no intention of ‘taking-over’ Carlisle United. I put forward a plan from which a lot has been adopted by the board. It’s clear they don’t want me involved. I don’t have a problem with that – but I do have a problem in having my integrity and motives questioned."
