Bristol Rovers are facing a boardroom battle for control of the club.
Three directors from an eight strong board have quit in the past week after one of them, Mike Turl, made proposals to inject £500,000 into the club. The trio claim the offer was rejected by the rest of the board before the full details were given to them.
The proposals included the removal of current long-serving chairman Geoff Dunford from the post, a move now backed by Supporters Club chairman John Malyckyj: "In taking this decision, we realised the implications that it would have for chairman Geoff Dunford and his colleagues. But based on the information provided, it appeared to provide a real opportunity to begin the task of taking Bristol Rovers forward once again. The loss of Mike Turl, Kevin Spencer and Colin Williams represents a hammer blow to Bristol Rovers and in my view their return to the board and the implementation of Mike's plan should be a priority for everyone."
The supporters club have a director and an associate director on the board but the majority shareholders, two other directors holding 54% of shares between them, are currently backing Dunford.
