The Professional Footballers’ Association have stepped in to pay the Northampton players, who weren’t paid their wages at the end of October.

If the clubs staff have also been paid their wages owing (or not, assuming they haven’t been paid) I couldn’t say? However, I’d assume the PFA only cover the players’ wages? But that’s just me speculating.

The well documented financial issues at Sixfields meant the players weren’t paid, with the PFA’s help they now have.

Earlier this week the BBC also reported the Police were now involved with the £10.25m loan to the club by Northampton Borough Council, which of course as we know is something they want back and ASAP.

£166,000 is also owed to HMRC, which is why the winding up petition has been brought against the club..

It was said the Northamptonshire Police were ‘working with Northampton council “to see whether any criminality has occurred” in connection’ with that loan but the Police say ‘no formal complaint’ had been received with them ‘not in possession of any material at this time that would warrant an investigation.’

Northampton are going through difficult times off the pitch but Chris Wilder, who hasn’t been speaking too much publically recently, has continued to go about his business in a dignified manner, however the Cobblers boss was of the opinion these problems have brought all at the club ‘closer together.’
