The Chairman of Bridlington Town has once again offered the sale of his club to the owners of North Ferriby United.

It comes as the club which sits rock bottom of the National League North has signed a fifth player from The Seasiders in just three months. Earlier this month, Peter Smurthwaite invited the owners of North Ferriby United to take over his club because they signed so many of his players.


Smurthwaite’s statement includes this excerpt:

NFU obviously have no respect for the Registration Rules and it is such a shame they are allowed to get away with it, yet if it was my club I think it might have been sorted.

I will most probably now be charged with “bringing the game into disrepute” something they do quite well themselves but at least I will “eventually” have my medal to wear with pride and show to people who do have respect for myself and our football club. The offer is still on the table if NFU want to come and take the full club.”
