The brothers must be well out of it. They would never have passed up on a headline like this.

I'm led to believe he was approached last season in a playing capacity.

Using 'players' in a wider sense, it seems the brothers were recently appointed directors of Harmonia Investment Limited. This is a company controlled by Bruno Petruzzo.

Anyone remember Sam Okafor, a Nigerian player we had, around maybe 20 years ago? He is apparently likely to be appointed Chief Executive of Kick It Out, the anti-discrimination in football organisation. Sam appears to have had a stellar career in banking since his playing days.

Yes, decent right back I think. Played under Ian MacDonald in the relegation season and also in Alan Devonshire’s first squad.

Interesting. Can’t see any official confirmation of that so guessing a bit of inside knowledge.
