"Following a lot of speculation and hearsay surrounding Mr Michael P Marsland's (also
known as Big Mike) departure from Strategic Betting Ltd, we the remaining directors
feel that our members both past and present, deserve to know the truth.
Michael P Marsland resigned from his position as Managing Director of Strategic
Betting Ltd in December 2011, unfortunately he failed to inform the other directors of
Following a claim from the estate of one family who were former members of Big Mike
Betting, Mr Michael P Marsland went into voluntary bankruptcy and was subsequently
declared bankrupt on 8th March 2012 . We confirm that at this time Strategic Betting
Limited had no knowledge of any of these facts and were not at any time party to Mr
Marsland's insolvency. The link below explains this.
On the 1st June 2012, at the Brighton County Court, the judge filed against Mr
Marsland and awarded the family in question the sum of £259,108.97.
Michael P Marsland wrote his last column for Strategic Betting Ltd, on 16th March 2012,
saying that he was going back to his old pals in auctioneering. We confirm that since
that date he has had no involvement with the Company and will not have in the future.
Since April of this year, all betting advice for this service, has been provided by full
time Betting Professional Andrew Watson, Form Expert Ian Clarke (father of Betting
Professional Russell Clarke) and our Football Betting Expert Ken Baker.
Apart from some minor disruption caused by Mr Marsland's sudden departure back in
March, Strategic Betting (as we wish to be known now) is unaffected by this situation
and continues to trade successfully.
