Mystery Man Set To Buy Trinity
12th March 2017
A yet unknown local businessman has reportedly had an offer accepted to buy National League North side, Gainsborough Trinity. Trinity’s potential new owner’s plans for the club are yet unknown, but he is said to be highly ambitious. A source close to the club has hinted that the new owner will have a 5 year plan to get the club into the Football League for the first time since they were voted out of the Second Division in 1912.
Gainsborough are founding members of the National League North, but have thus far failed to gain promotion into the National League. Although, they did go close during the 2011-12, falling to defeat in the play-off final to Nuneaton Town, after beating ex-football league side Halifax Town in the semi-final.
The town has had high hopes for the club since then, with a feeling that their time is coming ever closer with a strong recruitment drive over the last couple of seasons, however chances of promotion are again looking unlikely this season.
Can this new mystery man finally lead the club to a higher level?
