No sale of tickets for the away game against Macclesfield Town on the 21/12/2019 as been authorise yet

Macclesfield staff, coaching staff and players say they are close to breaking point and have reacted angrily to suggestions by majority shareholder Amar Alkadhi that the club is in a "healthy state".

It was reported on Monday that players had threatened to go on strike for Saturday's league game against Crewe if the latest wages were not paid.

One player, who split with his wife and could not afford alternative accommodation, is believed to have slept in his car in a supermarket car park for two nights recently. Others are struggling to put petrol in their tanks. The average wage at Macclesfield is £600 per week.


The first team followed through on a strike threat last month, forcing the club to field youth team players in an FA Cup tie against Kingstonian.

HM Revenue & Customs, asked the judge to make a winding up order. He did not say how much tax Macclesfield owed but the judge said the sum was "very large".A payment made to HMRC had "bounced back".

Sol Campbell former Macclesfield manager wants club wound-up over debts owed. Campbell, said Macclesfield owed him about £182,000.

The judge was given updates on the League Two football club’s debt problems at a hearing in the specialist Insolvency and Companies Court in London.

She said Macclesfield bosses should get time to clear the debts and said the case would be reconsidered on December 18

The EFL will meet the players of Macclesfield Town to discuss the current situation at the Club, amid ongoing concern of the impact of late payments of wages on the health and wellbeing of those involved and their willingness to fulfil the Club’s scheduled League Two fixture against Crewe Alexandra on Saturday 7 December and potentially other fixtures moving forward.

The EFL notes today’s latest statement from the players at the Club alongside the recent comments made by the majority shareholder Mr Alkadhi, and it is clear there are challenges to be overcome. The League has significant sympathy for the players and employees, who continue to feel the substantial impact of the continued financial challenges.

The EFL also notes the adjournment decision taken by the High Court on Wednesday in respect of the HMRC winding up order served against Macclesfield Town.

Since first being alerted to the financial challenges faced by the Club, the EFL has worked tirelessly in an attempt to source an appropriate resolution, utilising central payments to ensure players and staff were paid whilst the owner has looked to find a sustainable longer term solution to the ongoing issues. It remains the Club’s obligation to find a way to deliver on the commitments it has made both in private and public to the current issues being faced.

Last month Macclesfield Town was charged with misconduct under EFL Regulation 63.7 and referred to a Disciplinary Commission for failing to pay its players on the applicable payment due dates, with a hearing to be held later this month.

While the EFL, who will continue to provide all available support, fully understands the reasons for the position adopted by the players and their current concerns, it must also ensure the integrity of the League is maintained. Therefore, the Club will be subject to a further misconduct charge under Regulation 31.2 for non-fulfilment of fixtures if Saturday’s match does not take place as scheduled

This gets on my tits big time. If the FA did proper fit and proper owner tests firstly we wouldn't have had Brent who literally didn't have a pot to piss in when he rocked up at HP and also the Bury, Blackpool and Bolton fiascos could have been averted. I think the if FA had to cover the players wages in these cases they would be a bit more careful letting dodgy bastards buy clubs in the first place.

Is it the FA or the EFL? Anyway, If nobody 'fit and proper' rolls up to buy these clubs, what choice do the EFL- FA have, but to go with who is offering to buy, unless it's obvious they are criminal in intent?  The other choice is let them go bankrupt there and then.   If one of the 'big' clubs got in trouble, the EFL- FA wouldn't have the money to cover the wage bill anyway...

Macclesfield Town v Crewe Alexandra suspended by English Football League

If they are thrown out of the league, there are a lot of clubs above us who have taken point off them and will sure to lose them.

Our game is looking extremely unlikely now. Got Vale v Cheltenham as back up as a game to go too should it all go belly up (which is looking very likely)

Yep if no one who can pass a fit and proper person test shows up then why not let shysters and crooks run them? Lolz.

In fact why have the F&P test in the first place? Maybe we could just have a system whereby the prospective owner has to look the owner of the clubs biggest supporters forum in the eye ? That should dictate whether the owner is fit and proper

Yep that would work. What we should avoid at all costs is trying to improve anything just in case some millionaires get upset. That would just be dreadful.

A judge has adjourned a bid to wind up Macclesfield Town.

Judge Sally Barber considered Macclesfield's case at a hearing in the specialist Insolvency and Companies Court in London on Wednesday.

She said the case would be reconsidered on January 15.

Tax officials have asked for the club to be wound up because debts have not been paid.

Former manager Sol Campbell has supported that application.

Judges have been told that Macclesfield bosses owed a "very large" amount of tax and owed Campbell more than £180,000.

A lawyer representing HM Revenue and Customs told Judge Barber that Macclesfield bosses said payment had been made.

The judge said she would allow time for the payment to clear.

Campbell became manager of Macclesfield, who are in League Two, in November 2018 but left by mutual consent in August.

He subsequently took over at Southend United

Against any team this would be dead annoying, but for one whose fans could be travelling the best part of a 500 mile round trip I just hope it's sorted some time tomorrow.

I hope they can somehow pull through.

Macclesfield Town docked six points by EFL over financial issues

The League Two club have failed to pay their players on time on numerous occasions in recent months.

Their players refused to play against Crewe on 7 December citing concerns over their emotional wellbeing.

Macc have had a further four-point deduction suspended.

The club will still have to fulfil the fixture with Crewe, although a new date has yet to be arranged.

Macclesfield are now 22nd in League Two, three points above the relegation zone, and have not won in eight matches.

The club were forced to field a mixture of youth team players and loanees in their FA Cup first-round tie with seventh-tier Kingstonian last month after the first team refused to play having not been paid on time. The league side lost 4-0 at home.

Macc had a winding-up order over unpaid taxes adjourned for a ninth time on Wednesday after payment was made, and news of the points deduction comes as owner Amar Alkadhi continues to try to sell the club.

Argyle media

WE are aware of speculation surrounding Saturday's Sky Bet League Two match at Macclesfield, specifically that the game may be in jeopardy over safety concerns.

We have been in constant contact with the EFL, who are also talking to Macclesfield Town officials.

It is our understanding that there are safety issues with Macclesfield's Moss Rose ground that need to be addressed before the League will give the green light to the match going ahead.

Macclesfield are working to resolve those issues, and, as things stand, Saturday's game will go ahead as scheduled, kicking off at 3pm.

We are expecting a further update from the EFL this afternoon.

Wait for it to be called off at about 2pm tomorrow. We could really do with playing his one points for the taking foreshore.
