"Macclesfield Town fans say they are “devastated” after the club was wound up in the High Court over debts totalling more than £500,000.
The 146-year-old National League club was forced into liquidation during a hearing at the Insolvency and Companies Court earlier this week. Following the news, the Silkmen Supporters’ Trust laid the blame squarely with club owner Amar Alkadhi - but called for fans to pull together behind potential phoenix club efforts. “The court ruling is in effect the end of the club in the present format,” the Silkmen Supporters' Trust said. “There is no easy way back from this.”
The demise of Macclesfield Town once again highlights the urgent need for reform of the game's regulation according to our chair Malcolm Clarke. “Despite this loss," Clarke said, "the future of football in the town may well be supporter-led.
"We have seen phoenix clubs emerge with success in other parts of the country so we’ll be offering Macclesfield Town fans and the Silkmen Supporters’ Trust whatever help we can.”
Worst news from garage just now - beloved 20 yr-old Landie chassis's a gonner :(
Some enthusiast will want to buy it, but I need a replacement, not a LR Defender.
Anyone driven 4 x 4 with really good old-fashioned box-type seat? I have back problems & am tall, drive with lumbar cushion in small of back which means I sit very upright & many cars' headroom just isn't enough.
Jeez, you'd have thought the Met would at *some* point ask a police surgeon to examine him wouldn't you. Ditto at least look at his computer & phone. Many peoples' lives needlessly wrecked, and the cause of genuine survivors set back.
