Any news regarding recent events off the pitch will be posted here.
Previous statement from the Chairman:
We are dealing with the matter of a winding up order served on the club by Mr Ritchie Wharton of Trystar Construction Ltd.
The loan was taken out by the previous chairman David Holmes. When I took over as Chairman I was assured on 3 occasions that there was no debt at the club! When this “loan” came to light I tried to negotiate the situation with Mr Wharton but his main focus was on winding up the club and taking the scoreboard which is not our s but Mr Bob Rich’s property.
Our legal team are now in negotiations and we are confident that the matter will be resolved to everyone’s satisfaction and the club will continue with its main focus of playing football.
Chairman – Bedlington Terriers FC
