Welling United of the Conference South are the latest club to attract the attentions of HMRC’s legal department.  Due in court on 25th August, the winding-up petition is related to a debt of £85,000 (1). For once the ownership history of the club is very straight forward.  Stuart Fuller of The Ball is Round sums […]

Round-up of Season 2011/12

Posted on September 8, 2012

The 2011/12 season has been characterised by long-running sagas.  Normally I find myself in an annual review recounting a series of relatively self-contained accounts of the woes which have beset a number of clubs, but many of those listed below are far from resolved scenarios. The selection is not systematic – it consists of the […]

Even though games will […]
