The house of cards Clarke ePOS built looks like it's beginning to crumble. Quick search last week when it was mentioned returns lots of publicity for the company setting up "record sponsorship" deals with various SPFL clubs, Juniors, Lowland league and Women's teams - one could easily be forgiven for thinking they're main business was sponsoring not online transactions!
How they managed to hoodwink so many is an embarrassment.

 

Owner of the company has just taken over at Ardeer Thistle as well.

I'd be very concerned for the future of that club.

I can't be certain but is that Harry Burgoyne playing as trialist for Peterhead in their defeat to Dundee at the weekend 

Bit late with this but yes that’s him. He’s changing career and got something to do with Oil and Gas up in Aberdeen so a part time move to Peterhead makes sense. Would have taken him back at Falkirk. Wonder if we could have got him part time playing and a job with Ineos? Anything better than Holt, that’s for sure!

Have to agree with an earlier reply to this but I now doubt it is him.

If set up to launder money then moving into sponsorship seems to have only shined a light on it.  Very strange behaviour.  The 'business model' for these type of shell companies must be to eventually go into administration with any money generated squirreled away before then or laundered into the accounts of the criminal fraternity. Not sure how they're benefitting from all these sponsor deals unless they've helped them win some big contracts they have no intention of fulfilling.  Can't see a way this ends other than jailtime.

Unless it's simply an owner playing Billy big boots and sponsoring all these clubs so that he can wine and dine have fancy holidays and pass himself as a successful business man for a period of time . Mark Campbell comes to mind.

Sorry, no further details as yet.

However, it’s fairly obvious this chap is not meeting his obligations.

This characters LinkedIn postings are quite entertaining.

Believe he’s Ethan Ross cousin so could be a possibility.

My daughter follows Harry Burgoyne on Instagram, pictures of him getting married 2 weeks ago, he doesn’t even have a beard.

Thought he had signed with Shrewsbury for a further year?

A case of mistaken identity on my part. It's not him. Case closed 🤝

Pleasing to see Holt has been shown the door

No idea if he was a good goalkeeper or not. Good luck to the guy. With money being the way it is though we didn't need three goalkeepers so it made sense to let him go, assuming, of course, that it was a good deal financially for the club. I wouldn't have thought that he would have been on much so this maybe covers Yeats' wages?

He mentioned in his loan spell at Falkirk how quickly he could grow a beard so doesn’t surprise me to see it back in as early as 2 weeks.
