Badgers takeover close, insists Lynch
STEVE Lynch today told the Post he expects to complete a takeover of Eastwood Town by Thursday.
A chaotic last few days at Coronation Park has seen Jamie Brough quit as manager on Thursday, leaving captain Steven Istead to take charge of the team for Saturday's 2-1 defeat at FC Halifax.
Brough has also handed over his 50 per cent stake in the club to Lynch and the Halesowen Town chairman is now keen to acquire outright control.
He is currently on holiday in Ireland but said: "It's my intention to get a deal sorted quickly.
"I have put a lot of time and effort into sorting things out at Halesowen and I intend to do the same here."
Former Stafford boss Chris Brindley was set to be named manager only to pull out to take another job.
But, successful takeover permitting, Lynch is determined to make an appointment before the Badgers' next game at home to Histon on October 22.
He is keen to outline his plans at a fans' forum on October 19.
