Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has declared an interest in investing in troubled National League club Dagenham & Redbridge.
‘The Daggers’ have hit financial troubles following the recent resignation from the board of their majority shareholder and MacAnthony was approached by a fan of the non-league club on social media last night (February 19) for help. MacAnthony had been unaware of the club’s plight, but immediately showed an interest in getting involved.
Football League rules allow him to have a stake in an another club outside of the Football League. MacAnthony tweeted: “Great club with such pedigree for lower league talent recruitment. (I’d) be happy to take a look at it (helping).
“I think I could be a majority shareholder until Dagenham win promotion to the Football League then I’d hand it to someone trustworthy for them to operate. Just an idea obviously, but it would be good for Posh and for them.
“I’ve asked Barry Fry to contact John Still for the lie of the land.”
