Northampton Town FC is in huge financial peril. The club faces a winding up petition in the High Court from HMRC over an unpaid tax bill.
There are also serious concerns over the whereabouts of a £10.25 million loan from Northampton Borough Council for stadium works which have not been completed. The players and staff are currently working for no pay.
Over the last few months questions posed by Northampton Town Supporters’ Trust to the football club’s chairman, David Cardoza, regarding this critical situation have remained unanswered.
The Sky Blue Trust and Northampton Town Supporters’ Trust are now uniting in solidarity over the need for a healthy say in our respective clubs.
Northampton Town Supporters’ Trust has launched a fighting fund to help save Northampton Town Football Club because it is at risk of going into liquidation. The initial target is £100,000.
Funds raised will be used to deliver a more functional voice for supporters in any club in the future. This may mean negotiating with a new owner, administrators or the establishment of a phoenix club. Please help give a fighting chance to a club with 118 years of history.
A bucket collection by both Coventry and Cobblers fans towards the fighting fund will take place outside the Ricoh Arena before the FA Cup tie this Saturday, 7th November.
We would like to call on Coventry City fans and visiting Northampton Town supporters to please help our cause and donate. If you can’t attend the match then please visit our online fundraising page at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/ntfctrust
