Ridsdale receives lengthy ban

Next Story

Preston chairman Peter Ridsdale has been banned from holding any company directorships for seven-and-a-half years following an investigation into financial irregularities by the Insolvency Service.

The ruling relates to payments totalling £347,000 made by Cardiff to Ridsdale between May 2007 and March 2009 during his spell as their chairman. The monies should have been directed to the 60-year-old's WH Sports Group (WHSG) consultancy service.

WHSG was liquidated in April 2009 with liabilities of £478,698, including significant tax debts of £442,353 owed to HM Revenue and Customs. Ridsdale's wife Sophie served as a co-director at WHSG and has been banned until April 2016.
