Folkestone Invicta anyone?
Posted by John Beech on July 6, 2009
Does anyone know the latest news of Folkestone Invicta, the resurrectionist successor to Folkestone Town who were expelled from the Beazer Homes League in 1990 over financial difficulties?
On June 24th the Kentish Express reported the club as facing the threat of Administration (1); they faced an ‘imminent Administration threat’ according to Kent News the following day (2), and on the 29th were ‘ expected to go into Administration’ (3); also on the 29th, the Kentish Express reported that a decision on going into Administration over debts of £70,000 was due within twenty-four hours (4). Since then, no news. The club website (5) has, as I write, nothing more recent than ‘Invicta set for pre season’ dated 15th June..
Was it an awful lot of smoke without fire, or is there still a frantic struggle to re-finance going on?
