Crawley have been given until March 17 to pay HMRC tax bill for undisclosed amount. The local Argus reports it is surprised (at the outstanding bill) in view of the optimistic comments coming from the club !!!

The Argus goes on to say that no-one at the club was available for comment!

Apparently Burscough have been given another 2 weeks to pay their debts.

I ventured onto the Crawley website a few moments ago and happened to notice that it only lists fifteen players in their first team squad. That's not enough to fill a sub's bench.....

http://www.crawleytownfc.com/players.php?pageid=57

I'm sure they had a much bigger squad earlier in the season. Are events from our own Football League relegation season starting to repeat themselves?

Seems they are trying to raise money any way they can and there has been an aire of desperation in recent weeks.

We all know how lardy loud mouth attracts players with lucrative contracts and then they have to be off-loaded after Christmas. The same seems to be happening there with the high earners being the first out the door.

I think they have history with the tax man though and he will probably not be too sympathetic this time around.

This is the time Evans takes loanees on from his "big mates" like Warnock , but it does not seem to be happening season.  Any ideas why?

Mrs CARTER co-owner of CTFC has now told Argus "the bill was paid a fortnight ago "  As LP suggested sounds more like our relegation season repeating.

If it was paid why give them to the 17th March then...all very odd as usual.

Just supposing about Burscough... We've taken one point out of two matches against them this year, BPA have taken three from two, Retford, Guiseley and North Ferriby three from one.

Not willing them to go under, but it'd give us a boost.

I agree, it wouldn't be nice to see another club go under but what do Boston fans want more, Burscough to survive or the Pilgrims to get promoted?
