Financially crippled Chester City today faced a fresh fight for survival. According to the BBC website, the Blues could be expelled from the Football Conference if they do not repay debts to Wrexham AFC and Vauxhall Motors by 1730 GMT Monday.
The article on the BBC site continues:
“In addition the Conference have enforced a transfer embargo on the club for the non-payment of creditors. City failed to pay Wrexham for away ticket sales and owe Vauxhall Motors for the loan of ex-striker Paul Taylor.
“Chester are bottom of the Blue Square Premier after suffering a 25-point deduction at the start of the season.
“They currently trail Hayes & Yeading and are 21 points off safety in the table.
“City started the season a week late after the Football Association initially refused them permission to play following a controversial takeover during the summer.
“Owner Stephen Vaughan put the club into voluntary administration in May, following their relegation from the Football League, and then was part of the family consortium that bought back the club.”
