Boxing promoter and die-hard Owl Dennis Hobson has entered his name back into the mix for potential investment into the club.

Hobson showed interest in pumping money into cash-strapped Wednesday when Dave Allen was chairman of the club but saw his attempt knocked back at the time.

But, with Allen now vacant from Hillsborough, Hobson has declared his interest in helping to ‘move the club forward’.

But he told the Sheffield Star that he hasn’t yet been involved in discussions with fans’ group Wednesdayite in setting up a potential consortium to take over the club.

Hobson told the Star that he ‘would jump at the chance to make a difference at Wednesday’ and that he knows ‘what’s needed but it needs a major team effort off the field’.

Hobson’s interest comes following interest from Club 9 Sports, who are thought to be preparing a new bid for the Owls but who are expected to see their moves knocked back by the Wednesday board.
