Latest insolvency news

Posted by John Beech on October 1, 2009

  • Accrington Stanley
    The Supporters Fund is in a stand-off with the club (1).  It seems to have a position of strength and seems well placed to take over.
  • Bromsgrove Rovers
    The club is planning to go into Administration (2 and 3).  It seems there is a hidden struggle over future ownership of the club.
  • Hyde United
    The club hopes to hear this week if its appeal against the HMRC winding-up order will be successful (4).
  • Portsmouth
    The continuing delay in getting new funding is creating major cashflow problems for the club (5), with the result that the players have not yet been paid this month.  And neither has the executive board either.

But some good news too:

  • Crawley Town
    The club has settled with HMRC and the winding-up proceedings have been dropped (6).  [More on this soon]
