Gordon Taylor, Humphreys, Bower & Gothard – a full apology

We also mistakenly implied that Michael Birch and Gary Wood (partners with Humphreys, Bower & Gothard of Manchester and Accountants for the Professional Footballers’ Association) might have been involved in concealment of PFA assets, or were so negligent in carrying out their professional duties that they failed to notice assets of £20m. We accept that the above statements were wholly unfounded. We would like to apologise to Messrs Taylor, Birch and Wood for any embarrassment caused as a result. In lieu of damages Messrs Taylor, Birch and Wood have requested that we make a donation to the Professional Footballers’ Benevolent Fund which we are happy to do, and also to pay their legal costs.
