Farsley Celtic LATEST and Salisbury City

Posted by John Beech on July 7, 2009

Things look grim both ‘up North’ and ‘down South’, and football’s governance may have to face up to an unforeseen problem.

Celtic, now in Administration, have been thrown out of the Conference (1) but semed to have a possible lifeline of appealing to the FA on the precedent of Northwich Victoria (2). Now the Non-League Newspaper reports that the Conference have closed this loophole at their AGM, albeit in slightly controversial circumstances (3).

Meanwhile, Salisbury City are said in the same report to be facing expulsion after investors pulled out – they had been up for sale for £1 (4), providing a new owner payed off their unspecified debts.

The problem arises as to where the clubs would then go. Both the Northern and the Southern Leagues have finalised their programmes for next season.

The financial problems of the football industry are moving it into uncharted waters, and still there is no sign that the new reality has been taken on board by the governing bodies.
