Oh dear Chester.....

Recommended Posts



CHESTER CITY was today served with a petition to compulsorily wind it up.


HM Customs and Excise has brought proceedings against the club for unpaid VAT. The Evening Leader understands that the matter is a historical issue which is likely to be contested by the club. Chester City bosses have been called to attend a hearing which will be held at the High Court of Justice, Liverpool District Registry, at Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts, Derby Square, Liverpool, on July 26, at 10am.


The company, incorporated in December 1994, has until 4pm on July 23 to reply to the petition for the winding-up. News of the winding-up petition appeared in the London Gazette on Friday, July 16.


Chester City refused to comment today on the issue.

Meanwhile, Boston have contacted the Football League claiming Chester have not paid the final payment of striker Daryl Clare's performance-related fee.


"It wouldn't be fair to state figures but we are still owed the final part of a substantial fee," Pilgrims chairman Jon Sotnick said.


"We have been in touch with the League but have not as yet lodged an official complaint because we have been promised the money at some point."


But Vaughan hit back, saying: "We have paid every penny that was owed to Boston, and I have had that confirmed by their chairman."
