‘The directors are assisting the administration process by providing working capital for the club in the interim period.

‘The administrators are aware that the club was in the process of realisingsurplus land assets, the proceeds of which will restore the company’s liquidity and provide a positive cash flow.’

The administrators are in the process of putting together a financial plan to reschedule the repayment of the club’s debts.
