Northampton were in court on Monday face a winding-up petition, which was brought against the club by HMRC over unpaid taxes, as we know, amounting to £166,000.

The ongoing problems (I’ll say it once again) at Sixfields, that we don’t need to go into, are very well documented!

A decision was taken to adjourn the HMRC winding up petition until the end of the month, 30th November but before this the administration petition put against the club by Northampton Borough Council will be heard, this will take place a few days earlier on 27th November.

The administration petitions, as the BBC reports, do ‘take precedence over winding-up petitions’ with the council making this move ‘in a bid to buy time to pull together a rescue plan’ and, as we already knew, give it ‘more control over the club’s future.’

After this adjournment Northampton issued this statement.

‘The club’s role is currently to provide assistance where necessary to the ongoing process and to ensure that through this period the club continues to operate as normal.

‘We understand this is a difficult situation for supporters and we would like to thank all supporters for their continued patience and support.’

Also on the BBC, with you actually able to view what Chris Wilder said, the Northampton boss has shared his latest views on being ‘exhausted by questions about the Cobblers’ takeover situation’ as Kelvin Thomas’ proposed bid rumbles on.
