Citizen insane?

My write-up of Monday evening's FSF Awards night referred to Olivier Bernard as "ex-Toon left-back" and "a passionate anti-racism campaigner". To that list you can add "owner and chairman of a Northern League Division One club". Yes, really - he's just bought Durham City.

Cue grand visions of making the Citizens "one of the best feeder clubs in the north east" and of helping to develop future England players. It's a laudable aim that can genuinely be labelled a "project", and we wish him all the best - but also fear he might find it harder to realise his ambitions than he thinks.
