The suspension of Chester City
Posted by John Beech on February 11, 2010
As Stephen Vaughan seems unwilling to do the decent thing and fall on his sword, the Conference have given him a shove in the right direction by suspending the club, ostensibly for failing to fulfill fixtures (1). The suspension is for seven days, but as the police will no longer man matches at the Deva because of an unpaid bill, the players will no longer play because they haven’t been paid for three months, and the club, in the Conference remember, has debts of £700,000 (see Ian King’s excellent TwoHundredPerCent scoop for details), it’s going to take a EuroLottery rollover win to see the club back on the pitch in its current format.
Trading solvently? My arse, as Jim Royle would put it. (See previous posting)
May Chester City 2004 Ltd. be confined to the dustbin of history, and let’s hope to see AFC Chester arise very shortly.
