Chelsea Village, the Premiership football club, joined Aim yesterday, dubbed by some as the Vauxhall Conference of the stock market. Placed at 55p, the shares in active trading reached 60p. The club has attracted three market makers - JP Jenkins, Merrill Lynch and Winterflood Securities.

Just, a character merchandising group traded on Ofex at 3p, is due to move to Aim soon. To handle the deal Just has called in Ellis & Partners, Chelsea's stockbroker, to replace Keith Bayley Rogers.

Ronson, the branded goods group, fell 2p to 44p, lowest for more than a year. Figures are near. In January a fire wrecked one of its canning factories although the company is insured against any lost profits. In the previous year profits were pounds 2.7m.
