Just another false piece of information coming in from twitter regarding a class of 92 style takeover of Curzon Ashton?
One hopeful or attention seeking twitter account has put this out to Curzon Ashton fans:
A Chinese consortium, rumored to be worth over £200,000,000 are keen to invest in @CurzonAshton. They are keen to replicate what the Class of 92 did with @SalfordCityFC and take the Ashton-based club to the Football League #WeAreCurzonAshton

Now I’m not saying it’s complete nonsense. Maybe they’ve got mixed up or are believing other people’s gossip and let’s be honest, stranger things have happened in football. However, Curzon Ashton fans have picked up on the tweet and have replied humorously with things such as, “it’s not April 1st.” As the fans continued to mock the tweet, the clubs official twitter page responded.
We’re not sure where this has come from but… 🤑🤑🤑 https://t.co/oZ9nbwMpnV

Paul Jolley, Curzon Ashton’s club director spoke to the Football Manc Cave on the matter “I can honestly say none what so ever. Someone with too much time on their hands, I think … or they know something we don’t!”
So we are all pretty sure now that this information is, in fact, all just rumours and completely made up. Either way, there are worse things that could have been made up about a team!
I’m just glad the fans and club officials can see the funny side.
