Legal proceedings have been commenced by Oakwell Holdings Limited against BFC Investment Company Limited in the High Court in Manchester. My understanding is that BFC Investment Company Limited is a Hong Kong company and owns more than 75% of the shares In Barnsley Football Club Limited, the latter being the company which operates the club. Oakwell Holdings Limited appears to me to be a Company which is or was operated by the Cryne family, but others will know more about this. Knights are the solicitors acting for Oakwell Holdings Limited. The action number is BL 2020 MAN 000076. The Claim Form was issued on 12 August. The claimant will have some months to serve the Claim Form so things may not proceed particularly quickly. To be clear, I am not “in the know”. The fact that proceedings have been commenced is a matter of public record. Further details may become publicly available if and when the Claim Form has been served and the Defendant company files an Acknowledgment of Service with the Court.
