Kings Lynn FC on the Brink

Unibond Premier League club King's Lynn FC face being wound up on Wednesday. The Norfolk club owe the taxman £67,000. A rescue seemed to be on the cards last week after potential investors came forward and the local council pledged support for improvements at the stadium which has faced ground grading problems that have held the club back. An appeal against the winding up order was due to be heard last week but the High Court not hear the case and they were given a seven day reprieve.

Non-League Casualties

Folkestone Invicta, themselves a 'phoenix' club that arose from the ashes of the financially troubled Folkestone, could go into administration on Monday unless they find the £70,000 they calculate they need to start next season. The Ryman South club have an outstanding tax bill of nearly £100,000. The directors are continuing their fight to reduce the HM Revenue and Customs bill. They fear that the club's debt could rise to £300,000 by this time next year. Invicta are still reeling from the loss of their main sponsors over the close season.
