The 00's And Clubs Are Dying

Postby The GFP » May 9th, 2012, 5:09 pm

I was playing FM2010 and saw the name Scarborough and thought that id not heard of them for a while and thought they were probably in the conference south but they went bust!

So did a bit of looking and found 13 clubs have gone bust in the last 6 years that ive heard of ...

CHESTER CITY
Founded: 1885
Folded: Mar-2007
Nickname: The Seals/The Blues
Stadium: Deva Stadium


SCARBOROUGH
Founded: 1879
Folded: 20-Jun-2007
Nickname: The Boro
Stadium: The McCain Stadium

In the 2006-2007 season Scarborough competed in the Conference North. They started the season with a 10-point deduction, for a breach of league rules, and finished in 20th place which would have resulted in their relegation to the Northern Premier League. They were dissolved on 20 June 2007 because of financial difficulties. Their last ever game, on 28 April 2007, was a 1-0 win at Hucknall Town. A new club was established by the Seadog Trust under the banner Scarborough Athletic F.C. on 25 June 2007.


MERTHYR TYDFIL
Founded: 1945
Folded: Jun-2010
Nickname: The Martyrs
Stadium: Penydarren Park


HALIFX TOWN AFC
Founded: 1911
Folded: 12-Jun-2008
Nickname: The Shaymen
Stadium: The Shay Stadium

The club went into administration during the 2007-08 season, and after finishing 20th in the Conference National, were demoted by two divisions to the Unibond Division One North when the club failed to get a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) passed. The club was reformed and renamed F.C. Halifax Town in July 2008.


NUNEATON BORROUGH

FISHER ATHLETIC

Nickname: The Fish

FARSLEY CELTIC
Founded: 1908
Folded: 10-Mar-2010
Stadium: Throstle Nest, Newlands

On May 27th 2009, it was announced by club president John Palmer that the club were "owing at least £200,000 in unpaid taxes". Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs told the club that they would have to attend a 'winding-up' hearing at the high court of London and refused a request to adjurn the hearing pending on the formal appointment of an administrator.


KINGS LYNN
Founded: 1879
Folded: 25-Nov-2009
Nickname: The Linnets
Stadium: The Walks Stadium

On 25 November 2009 they were officially wound up at the high court following debts of £77,000 to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs and in December went out of business after a failed appeal.


TELFORD UNITED
Founded: 1872
Folded: 28-May-2004
Nickname: The Bucks or Lillywhites
Stadium: Bucks Head

Late into the 2003-04 season, the chairman's business empire collapsed and all financial support for the club disappeared. The supporters rallied around, formed a supporters trust and ultimately raised over £50,000 in the space of a couple of months. Sadly, even this would not have been enough to sustain the club through to the end of the following season and the club was forced into liquidation. On the same day that the proposed liquidation was announced, the supporters trust (Telford United Supporters Ltd) created and became the sole owners of a new football club - AFC Telford United.


TEAM BATH
Founded: 1999
Folded: 2009
Nickname: The Crescents
Stadium: Twerton Park

After the Football Conference ruled in 2009 that Team Bath were not eligible to win promotion to the national division, a ruling which also meant that the club were no longer able to compete in Football Association cup competitions, they decided to fold at the end of the 2008-2009 season.


NEWCASTLE BLUE STAR
Founded: 1930
Folded: 26-Jun-2009

The team began the 2008-2009 season playing in the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division, but was dissolved in January 2009 due to its outstanding debts.
