Ok all you guys eagerly looking forward to the new season with multi-million pound Premier League teams. This is the other side of that very fat coin. Today Chester have had their CVA thrown out by the courts - this basically is the so-called agreement which allowed the financially-embarrassed club to be bought by new owners and prepare for the new season. Except that the new owners were actually the same as the old owners and the agreement wasn't actually an agreement at all because the tax and vat people hadn't signed up to it. Today the court agreed that the tax and vat people were fully justified in giving the plan short shrift, so the 'new' company can't go ahead and the prospects of us kicking off the campaign as scheduled on August 8th are looking more remote by the hour.
If all this results in the man who has steered the club to such a crisis, Stephen Vaughan, walking away then it won't have been in vain. It's time for a new start under (genuinely) new owners.
