DFCFreetransfer; reference your post about the FA cocking up. What exactly do you mean. Are you the club who failed to pay creditors claiming the money wasnt owed by yourselves but by the previous company? Then you appeal for leniency to the FA on the grounds you are not a new club....I reckon your creditors who are awaiting payment may just think the FA got it spot on right. There are so many conflicting versions in the press regarding the CVA that didnt happen, what is the real situation regarding "phoenix" club etc?
The real situation is that we are not a phoenix club.
We tried to do a deal with creditors but it was not possible, we are carrying on our commitment to pay the players that stayed with us, we raised substantial money in order to fund the club through the season after Singh pulled out, we would not die. By seeing the season out at our (the fans) cost, we avoided compromising the integrity of the BSP competition. We paid to buy the assets, naming rights of Darlington Football Club.
NONE of the above would have happened if we had folded in January, walked away, then came back now as a phoenix club, which is what the FA are trying to claim we are.
Darlington in the Northern League - Everyone, please remain calm. We are trying to solve this problem as quickly as possible. Please be patient.
