Chester choose administration

Published Add your comment

Relegated Chester have decided to enter administration as they prepare for life in the Blue Square Premier League.

The troubled club, who were relegated from the Football League on the final day of the season, have been considering the move for most of this week and confirmed on Sunday that they have called in the administrators.

A club statement read: "Chester City Football Club have, after discussions with debenture Stephen Vaughan, decided to enter voluntary administration in order to safeguard the future of the club."

Although it is yet to be confirmed, it seems likely that they will start next season on minus 10 points, with similar sanctions regarding clubs in administration applying in the Conference as the Football League.
