Ablett reveals Stockport fears

Published Add your comment

Stockport boss Gary Ablett fears the crisis-torn League One outfit have got just eight weeks to find a saviour or face extinction.

County have been in administration since last April, despite prolonged negotiations with the Melrose Consortium, and face expulsion from the Football League if they cannot find a buyer by the start of next season. The 2010/2011 season is due to start on Saturday, August 7, with the deadline for Stockport to exit administration set for the day before (August 6).

Ablett told the Stockport Express: "I think we've got until the day before the first game of next season to sort this situation out, but there's no way I can see it dragging on that long. If there's no investment come the middle of May, the club is in a really difficult situation in terms of going forward."

He added: "I haven't heard anything positive about the takeover. The harsh reality of the situation is that we don't know if there will be a club here next year."
