It’s been pretty quiet on the Wednesday takeover front in recent weeks, and it’s taken a national paper, the Telegraph, to delve into our hopes for the future.

We know that our chairman, Lee Strafford, began talks with American investment bank Inner Circle Sports (ICS) earlier this year, and they’ve taken on the task of finding the Owls an investor.

It’s a process that isn’t, and hasn’t, happening overnight, with the stability and future of the club more important than getting someone with a bit of cash in as soon as possible.

ICS’s Philip Hall spoke to the Telegraph about their association with Wednesday, describing the process of finding a buyer or investor as very much like a ‘dating service’ between the club involved and potential investor.

Hall revealed he was impressed with what Wednesday, and Strafford, had to offer, insisting that ‘There is good infrastructure in place.’

He continued: ‘They also own their training ground and have a history, a large fans base and a strong brand. It is a good combination.’

In Hall’s interview with the Telegraph, he revealed that the process won’t be a quick one, but the vibe seemed to be that he and his company were confident of attracting investment into S6.

He also backed up Strafford’s aims of attracting as many fans as possible to Hillsborough, saying that ‘the priority is to drive attendance’.

It seems that both the club, and ICS, are on the same wavelength, which can only be a good thing.
