Two arrests in Rams finances probe

Two men have been arrested as part of a police investigation into alleged financial irregularities at Derby County.

The inquiry relates to allegations regarding the takeover of the club in October 2003.

Derbyshire police have confirmed that investigations are continuing into the allegations.

A spokeswoman said: "The men, aged 51 and 46, were arrested during the last few weeks.

"They have been questioned and released on police bail while further inquiries are made."

The inquiry, which began last year, centres on a takeover at Pride Park by the previous board in 2003.

Jeremy Keith, John Sleightholme and Steve Harding became Derby directors after the club was bought from administrative receivers for just 3, backed by a 15m loan from a Panamanian-registered company, ABC Corporation.

Andrew MacKenzie was also on the board, while Paul Clouting was director of operations and Murdo Mackay was director of football.

The new administration, headed by Peter Gadsby, which took over in April last year, is not connected with the investigation.

A Derby County spokesman said last night: "As these arrests relate to a time before the current board took over the club, we've got no comment to make at this stage.

Good, lock all the ***** up
