Cobblers police investigation statement


It is clear that the Northamptonshire Police inquiry into alleged financial impropriety connected with a £10.25m loan to Northampton Town Football Club (under its previous ownership) is consuming considerable resources and is being conducted in a commendably thorough fashion.

A statement issued by Northamptonshire Police reveals that 2,100 exhibits have been seized, 700 separate lines of inquiry have been followed and over 500 statements and reports have been produced.  Seven individuals have been arrested and nine have been interviewed under caution.

The final outcome of the investigation will be awaited with interest by Cobblers fans and the football world generally.
