'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hammond: Takeover discussions very hopeful

Nicky Hammond is very positive about the new takeover at the club and also highlighted their evident experience.

Thai investor Samrit Bunditkitsada signed a deal last week to acquire 90% of the club, but still needs to be ratified by the Football League. He also owns a team in his native Thailand, Police United, and Hammond mentioned and praised their experience within the football sector.

Speaking to GetReading about the new owner, Hammond said: 'Within the group there are people who have been involved in the game, who have dealt with big clubs at executive level. Their experience and their knowledge was evident and of course gives you a bit of hope.'

'We had a number of very good meetings. They seem like very genuine people, they seem very keen on the club. Those conversations were very positive. It`s obviously up to other people at the club now to move that forward. But I came away from the discussions very hopeful."


It's good to see more positive vibes coming from the club, but there seems to be some hint of caution, in that the deal isn't fully complete just yet. We need to keep our feet on the ground until the final checks are made, then we can look at the future with optimism.
