How Did Vincent McBean Take Control of Clapton FC?
Despite some great publicity on the Internet, radio and newspapers as well as incredible support from the Clapton Ultras and members of the real club, the often asked question is "How did Clapton FC find itself in this situation?"
Here is the answer. Using a dodgy public limited company and a few associates who were later to be disqualified as Trustees by the Charity Commission, Mr McBean has bluffed his way into taking control of Knights Millennium Foyer. He then managed to resign, just before the Charity Commission intervention and escape disqualification as a Trustee. This, despite the accounts of the Charity clearing stating that nearly half a million pounds, much of it in cash, was said to have been paid to Mr McBean's Limited Company, Knights Corporation Limited for apparent services, which the Commission found had not been supplied to the charity at all. (Knights Corporation Limited was struck off without ever filing accounts)
Surprisingly, he remains a Trustee of WASP, the West Indian ex Servicemen's Association. Good luck to them!
