Bacup Borough boss blasts FC United over striker affair

1:41pm Friday 28th November 2008

BACUP Borough boss Brent Peters has blasted FC United after their attempted transfer of leading scorer Tommy Turner.

The Rebels put in a seven-day notice on Turner last Saturday and, after Peters gave the UniBond Premier Division side early permission to speak Turner, a story claiming they had signed Turner appeared in the press despite no deal being done.

Peters said: “I allowed Karl Marginson to speak to Tommy last week so we knew where we stood.

“Then I was bombarded with calls from our fans on Wednesday asking why we had let our best player go because there was a story in their paper.

"It was on the night when we had an important cup game so I was furious.

“The fact of the matter is that Tommy hasn’t signed for FC United yet, and he hasn't let me know his decision either way.”
