Ashford United regain ownership of Homelands in agreed settlement

By Andrew Gidley

Ashford United have regained ownership of Homelands after agreeing a settlement with Minotaur.

All parties involved have confirmed the conclusion of a long legal battle which began in November 2015.

A statement by United chairman Derek Pestridge, the club and Minotaur director Glyn Jones said: "The parties have agreed to resolve the disputes and their differences in a settlement agreement, of which terms are confidential.

"It is recognised that during the course of the last two years emotions have on occasion run high and a number of statements have been made by the parties to the settlement agreement.

"The parties wish to make it clear that no allegations of impropriety, fraud or malpractice are properly founded and that each party to the settlement agreement proceeds on the basis that each other party and their related parties has and continues to conduct its business properly and lawfully.

"There will be no further comment available from either party."

The news follows United winning their appeal to the Football Association last month to be allowed to be considered for promotion to the Ryman League, after the paperwork relating to their application missed the November 30 deadline.

On the pitch, United lead Southern Counties East League rivals Crowborough by a point, as they chase the League, League Cup and Kent Senior Trophy treble.
