Green entrepreneur to buy Forest Green FC

Eco-tycoon Dale Vince is poised to take over cash-strapped football club Forest Green, according to media speculation.

Vince, 48, built his A?85 million empire on wind power, making him Britain’s wealthiest green entrepreneur.

He is understood to have met up with Forest Green’s executives, including chairman David Drew, operations director Colin Peake and manager Dave Hockaday to discuss a potential takeover.

The football club had planned to raise A?250,000 by the end of June through a share issue, but failed to meet its investment target.

Forest Green declined to comment on the reports.
