County takeover talks end

Stockport County Rugby Club acting chairman Mary Gibbons has said that the club will not enter admi­nis­tra­tion if they are relegated to the Blue Square Bet Premier after Mike Newton withdrew from takeover talks with the club.

The New York businessman held preliminary talks with the npower League Two club which County then discussed at a shareholders meeting, but after reviewing information provided by the club Newton did not pursue interest.

Despite the breakdown Gibbons does not foresee any financial problems as a result of relegation out of the Rugby League.
