Blues set to start next season with points deduction

Chester City have entered administration following the club's relegation from the Football League.

The Blues have been considering going into administration since losing their League Two status earlier this month.

Several players have already left the club as a result of relegation to the Conference, while owner Stephen Vaughan has been looking for new investment.

However, the club have now headed into administration and are set to start next season in the Blue Square Premier with at least a 10-point deduction.

In recent weeks, Southampton, Stockport County and Darlington have all suffered points deductions as a result of administration.


great work knobhead :rant:

Chester City have been bought from their administrators by the Vaughan family backed Chester City Ltd 2004.

The Vaughan family, which include former City chairman Stephen Vaughan, now own 100% of the shareholding.

Vaughan told BBC Radio Merseyside: "We are now looking forward to the future and hopefully the people of Chester will get behind their club."

The announcement follows Thursday's agreement with creditors to allow the club to come out of administration.

Chester will find out on Saturday if they have been accepted into the Blue Square Premier following their relegation from League Two in May.

The club were put into voluntary administration by majority shareholder Stephen Vaughan following their relegation from League Two last month.

City had met with administrators, creditors and existing shareholders on Thursday morning to discuss the relegated Football League club's reported £7m debt.

They have been relegated from the Football League twice in the past nine years.

Chester sold last season's top scorer Ryan Lowe to beaten League Two play-off finalists Bury on Wednesday.

Chester's future has been thrown into doubt after a court overturned the club's bid to exit administration.

The club went into administration in May following their relegation from League Two before being bought back by former owner and chairman Stephen Vaughan.

A company voluntary arrangement - the process through which football clubs exit administration by agreeing to pay off a percentage of their debts to creditors - was initially secured.

But the CVA was challenged by HM Revenue and Customs in the Manchester High Court of Justice on Tuesday, with Judge Pelling QC revoking the agreement.

The Football Association has already prevented Chester from playing pre-season friendlies with their refusal to grant the Blues a licence.

The Deva Stadium outfit will not be allowed to play any matches until their licence is granted by the FA, with the overturning of the CVA likely to delay that process further.

And with the kick-off of the new Blue Square Premier season just days away, there are serious doubts as to whether Chester will be able to fulfil their opening fixture away to Grays a week on Saturday.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Martin Shaw of Refresh Recovery Ltd, and the administrator in this matter, stated that the decision by the court, on the application of HMRC, is a setback to the new owners of the club.

"However, we are actively talking with the Football Association in relation to the impact that this decision will have upon the transfer of the membership to the FA.

"The new owners and I are working with the Football Association to ensure that the club can commence playing matches when the new season starts on the 8th August, 2009."

Chester owner Stephen Vaughan says he is working hard to ensure City receive Football Association affiliation.

On Wednesday, HM Revenue and Customs' objection to the club's recent Compulsory Voluntary Arrangement was upheld by the High Court.

"We have had a number of discussions with officials from the FA who have been extremely helpful," said Vaughan.

City had been refused affiliation to the Football Association, while they awaited the High Court ruling.

The FA have raised a number of concerns after the Vaughan family took control of the club after a spell in voluntary financial administration following relegation from League Two in May.

Vaughan says he is confident he can provide the information that the FA are seeking.

Quote:
Naturally we will send the details that are requested, and give the assurances that are needed
Stephen Vaughan


"They require us to provide confirmation that our existing leases have been transferred to our new company, they also want cash flow projections, guarantees that we can meet our liabilities, and assurances that all football debts will be met in full.

"We will provide all this information in the next 48 hours and hopefully we will then be granted our affiliation," said Vaughan.

Chester are due to play a pre-season match against Droylsden this Saturday, ahead of them having to reassure the Football Conference they will take their place in the Blue Square Premier next season.

"We have also received a letter from the chief executive of the Conference, who requires various assurances by 3 August.

"Naturally we will send the details that are requested, and give the assurances that are needed," said Vaughan.

Chester City face an uncertain future following a High Court ruling in favour of HM Revenue and Customs.

The recent CVA saw the Vaughan family, backed by former owner Stephen Vaughan, take the club out of voluntary financial administration.

Without affiliation to the FA, Chester will be unable to take their place in the Blue Square Premier next season.


....and he made his own son, the fecking useless defender Chairman of the club :nono:

Good luck to them. They need it under the current owner. They've become like the non-league Newcastle.

Blue Square Premier side Chester should find out by Friday whether they will be allowed to kick off the new season.

City's future has come under threat since the Football Association refused their application for affiliation.

The FA has raised a number of concerns after the Vaughan family resumed control of the club after a spell in voluntary financial administration.

City are due to play Grays on Saturday but an agreement must be found before their season can get underway.

The relegated club, who are already due to begin the season on minus 10 points as a result of going into liquidation, face fears that they may yet be handed an even heavier penalty.

But Chester manager Mick Wadsworth is simply keen for the situation to be ironed out as soon as possible.

Quote:
I hope that good sense will prevail and we will get what we need
Chester manager Mick Wadsworth

"All I care about is that everything is ratified and we get the FA membership transfer," said Wadsworth.

"I hope that good sense will prevail and we will get what we need. I am sure we will.

"I am hoping everything goes our way this week and that we can start the season.

"We just want to get cracking because it hasn't been the perfect pre-season - but I am very happy with the strides we have made."

Wadsworth has so far brought in Hibernian's Uruguayan midfielder Fabian Yantorno, and defenders Tim Ryan and Michael Lea. And veteran striker Gregg Blundell, 33, has returned to the club.

Blundell, signed by then boss Keith Curle in July 2005, scored 15 times in his last stay before moving on to Darlington in January 2007.

Chester City have been given permission to start the new Blue Square Premier season this Saturday - but will have to start with a 25-point deduction.

City were already due to be docked an automatic 10 points for having gone into voluntary administration following relegation from League Two in May.

But an "interim statement" issued by the Football Conference on Thursday has confirmed the increased penalty.

And City will now be able to play their game at Grays Athletic on Saturday.

Chester had initially been denied Football Association affiliation last month, meaning they could not have commenced their league programme until it had been granted.

And owner Stephan Vaughan, who resumed control at the Deva Stadium in June after taking the club into liquidation in May, attended a meeting with FA and Conference officials at Nene Park, Rushden, on Tuesday.

The Conference is yet to reveal why City have been further punished.

A full statement will be released when the matter is finalised but it can be confirmed that the club will commence with a deduction of 25 points

Conference interim statement

But, with the big kick-off less than 48 hours away, and needing to bring the matter to a swift conclusion, they have opted to release an interim statement on their website.

"To ease concerns being expressed by those member clubs who are scheduled to play them in the forthcoming weeks," it read, "it was felt prudent to release this interim statement at this time.

"A full detailed statement relating to the conditions being applied will be released when the matter is finalised but it can be officially confirmed that the club will commence with a deduction of 25 points as one of those conditions."

Having at last had confirmation that he will be able to take charge of Chester for the first time at Grays on Saturday, City manager Mick Wadsworth can at last concentrate on matters on the field.

Since taking charge of Chester in late June, Wadsworth has so far brought in Hibernian's Uruguayan midfielder Fabian Yantorno, and defenders Tim Ryan and Michael Lea.

And veteran striker Gregg Blundell, 33, has returned to the club.

Blundell, signed by then boss Keith Curle in July 2005, scored 15 times in his last stay before moving on to Darlington in January 2007.

This whole point deduction thing has got to stop as it punishes the players and fans for the failures of the board. The people who have put the club into administration should be the ones punished not the fans.

The board should be banned from sitting on a board at a football club for say 5 years.
Owners banned from buying another club.

Seen it happen down the road at Luton there's no consistency in these punishement either they just decide how many points would relegate them why not just relegate them a division straight away instead of making them play out the season in the division.

Agreed parky. What they hope to achieve with a 25 point deduction is beyond me. All they are doing is making things 10 times worse for the club. Its like trying to put out a fire with petrol. Idiots.

Yep an even fairer ruling would be is if you go into administration you are relegated with the highest placing team in the league below the previous season that didn't go up taking your place or the loser of the playoffs. If you enter administration during the season your automatically relegated and will begin the season in the league below regardless of how many points you get.

At least this way you don't get the punishment over and over again if the club starts the following season in administration they shouldn't be punished again as it's not helping them stay a float it's just kicking them when they're down. The league are responsible for a lot of this some of these clubs are still battling from the shocking deal they made with ITV digital. We should be helping clubs stay afloat instead of sticking the boot in.

While points deduction does punish both fans and players, you have to ask yourself why Chester City have "allowed" themselves to be bought by the Vaughan Family......again!!

Vaughan offered to pay off a % of the debt, in acquiring the club.... no other offers were forthcoming.

Chester 'allowed' nothing.... & the council cut them a deal regarding renting the land, which is resulting in the cancelling of the pensioners bus pass scheme....

it's all goin' off
