Elderly Young aims for AIM

Robin_hoodTS was very pleased to hear the news that John Young, the octogenarian chairman of Young & Co’s Brewery, could be brightening up AIM later this year.

A man cut from the same fine cloth as TS, Young has turned up at shareholder AGMs over the years wearing over-sized boxing gloves, a beekeeper’s outfit and a Panama hat and white suit. On other occasions, Young has wielded a sword and shield and howled down a megaphone.

On 2 June shareholders will decide whether to move the company to AIM. Rumour has it Young may celebrate armed with a bow and arrow. Come the summer, TS hopes it will be toasting the move with a pint or twelve of Young’s finest.
