A Dundee football fan trying to revive his long-bankrupt club, has turned to eBay for help. Ed Sweeney says that he was a fan of Third Lanark as a child. Despite winning the Scottish Cup in 1905 and reaching the final only to lose to Rangers in 1936, in 1967 the club declared bankruptcy and closed. They lost their final game 5-1.
Two years ago, Mr Sweeney registered the name Third Lanark Football Club Ltd. with Companies’ House. Now he’s selling it, in the hope that the club will be resurrected. Despite being missing for forty years, the club seem to have plenty of fans. Apparently in an interview last year, Billy Connelly mentioned buying the club himself, so bargain hunters might want to get their snipes poised for this one.
