FOOTBALL ON THE DARK SIDE
The latest development in the Chester City story is that HM Revenue and Customs are due to meet the club's administrators on Monday. This clearly means that the administrator failed to secure an agreed settlement with HMRC when the club was in admin. Without such agreement, the new club cannot proceed. No wonder the FA is refusing to let us play any matches. But what made the club's owners think they could put a team on the park when the set-up hasn't been approved by the governing body? Sadly typical of the blundering which has characterised the Deva for too long.
