Hayden Dando, from Penkridge, and Graham Jones, from Cheslyn Hay, have taken over Riley’s Sports Bar on Broad Street in Wolverhampton.

Hayden said: “We will be undergoing a rebrand of the venue and it will be known as Centre Spot Sports Bar, we will be keeping pool, snooker and darts as well as having a big emphasis on live sport.

“We are also looking at a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights and we are aiming to turn the venue into a really fun, exciting place to visit as well as being an affordable venue as we know how tight things will be for many people following the pandemic.”

Hayden, 35, runs Lionheart Security Services in Wolverhampton, as well as being the joint owner of Hednesford Town Football Club, and former owner of V-Bar in Brierley Hill.

Graham, 42, is also joint owner of Hednesford Town Football Club, as well as running Residential and Commercial engineering LTD in Cannock.
