COBBLERS STAFF CALL FOR END TO WOES
STAFF at Northampton Town have demanded a swift end to the club’s financial turmoil.
As takeover talk rumbles on, players, coaches and other employees at the club have not been paid for three weeks, after its accounts were frozen following a winding-up petition by HMRC over £166,000 of unpaid taxes.
It is believed none of the 200-plus staff have resigned, while the Northampton Town Supporters’ Trust has donated £10,000.
However, a statement appeared on the Cobblers’ website on Friday, calling on chairman David Cardoza to bring matters to a conclusion.
“As things drag on, each day gets more and more difficult both professionally and personally,” it read.
“Each day the delays in completing the takeover mean another day where we have to find a way to feed our families and pay bills, while still not knowing when this whole nightmare will be concluded.
“We’d like to close by thanking all supporters for their ongoing support and Chris Wilder, Alan Knill and the players. For now, we will continue to carry out our duties to support them in the best way possible.”
