Cobblers staff turn on chairman

Share/Save

Northampton Town staff have taken the highly unusual step of using the club's website to criticise chairman David Cardoza.  He still owns the club and they demanded that he sell it 'within hours'.

The non-playing staff are in their fourth week without pay.   The club's bank accounts were frozen after Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs launched a winding up petition as a result of £166,000 of unpaid taxes. There is also an administration petition from Northampton Borough Council.

A Northampton-based quartet including a former chairman, two ex-directors and a former local MP have been trying to take over the club.   There has also been interest from former Swindon Town chairman Jed McCrory.
