I`s dotted.....T`s crossed for Groundbreaking Agreement!
Help the Hatters received a timely boost today as their actions in funding the Rhys Turner signing were backed up by a letter from Stockport County CEO Ryan McKnight, confirming the Clubs intention to honour what they view as a `legally binding agreement`.
This will come as a welcome relief to those doubting that this would transpire and is greatly to the Clubs credit!
As previously stated provision is made, in the agreement, for the return of the HtH moneys ,plus a % bonus payment that varies according to any fee received if and when Rhys leaves the Club.
It`s a magnificent deal for Club....player and Help the Hatters and this uniquely ground breaking agreement does not stop there........
Help the Hatters will then hold any moneys returned , ring fenced, until such time as Ian and Alan have a pressing need again- maybe for a loan signing in a promotion push. The moneys will then be put at the Managers disposal again, and thus another happy cycle of events is set in motion once again!
I am not sure whether such a scheme operates at any other club in the UK , but Help the Hatters intend to use it as a template going forward in the fervent hope of seeing County fly up the football pyramid.
