CHESTER CITY STAY ON DEATH ROW
A stay of execution but we remain on Death Row.
This evening the Conference backed off from expelling Chester City due to non-payment of football debts. New deadline is November 16th. So much for the club's assurance that the monies would all be handed over in good time.
To me the delay serves only to underline how skint the football club is. If they had the money, surely they would have paid up. And yet, barely three months after managing to get their debts wiped out by going into administration, they can't make this very important payment.
It looks like we will make it to Hallowe'en after all. But will we still be around on Twelfth Night? I'm not betting on it.
