Don't know what it went for before but if you could Crowd Source the funding and then run the company, there is no reason not to look at a co-operative type approach!

Up for sale just as they'd be expecting their highest orders/revenues with orders set to come in over the next month for 2014/15.

A potential Sports Direct acquisition?

Just off to the bank to try and get a business loan to fund this, they won't turn away a 20 year old with no borrowing history for a loan several times their salary will they??  :-[
