Crawley Face Voluntary Liquidation

Crawley Town face voluntary liquidation after the owner's CVA proposal was voted out at a meeting of creditors.

The Inland Revenue, owed nearly £250,000, and other creditors, including former manager Francis Vine, voted against the proposal, offered by owners Chaz and Azwar Majeed, leaving the Administrator free to sell the club to the highest bidder.

Crawley fans are in the process of forming a Trust and hope to at least form part of a bid to take over the club, while former diamond dealer and one-time Bishops Stortford chairman John Goodwin is also interested in taking the club forward.

Forest Green chairman Trevor Horsley has stepped down on health grounds. Vice Chairman Colin Gardner will step up until their next AGM when it is hoped Mr. Horsley can reprise the role.

Grays new signing Ashley Sestanovich has been sacked after he was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. He is to face court alongside former Farnborough team mate Carl Gibbs. Farnborough themselves are also in trouble, today calling in the Administrators after struggling to cope with life in Conference South.
