Notts Country club football pitch - @Official_NCFC twitter

American investment firm Jam Sports Ventures continues to be linked with purchasing the club Notts County after owner Alan Hardy put them up for sale.

JAM Sports is led by the former New York Yankees owner and managing general partner, Joseph A Molloy, along with other business executives.  The company, which looks for investors interested in professional sports teams, has refused to rule out a move for the Magpies, having been linked with buying the club in 2017.

Using its Twitter account @JamSportVenture, which they created earlier in the month, the firm said it would “not dare to blink if the right opportunity presents itself” and has since been interacting with fans.
