Moroka Swallows have slammed as a 'hoax' a letter published in part in the City Press, which reportedly states the club will be liquidated and moved to Cape Town.
The newspaper claim to be in possession of a copy of the letter, said to be written by managing director Leon Prins and intended for general manager Gavin Bernstein, in which Prins supposedly states, amongst other things, that the club will be moved to the Mother City.
But Prins has denied these claims, calling them 'malicious rumours' and 'ridiculous'.
"It is the first time I hear of this. Actually, it sounds funny to me. Moroka Swallows will never move to Cape Town," Prins told City Press. "The whole thing does not make sense and I wish to know who is behind this."
One important fact that Prins points out is that the letter is dated December 22, three days after the Moroka Swallows offices closed for the Christmas break.
There appears to be little benefit in moving the club to Cape Town, away from its traditional fan base, lending more credence to the fact that the letter was indeed written by someone out to cause mischief.
