Had a read about that. Not often you see a club directly name players lodging legal action against them, or blaming the players for "trying to shut down the club". Sad to see, seems we're probably going to see more and more clubs start to fall into financial ruin these days. When you have clubs like Salford with big budgets coming into the leagues, the other clubs need to spend to contend and end up wrecking themselvesIt looks like another lower league club could be in some difficulty, this time it's League Two club Macclesfield Town. Six players from last season joined a winding-up petition to claw back up to three months of unpaid wages. Once the money was paid they tried to dismiss the petition, but it has now gone to HM Revenue and Customs which means Macclesfield Town will be in court again. I think it's their third time in four months.
They aren't in as bad shape as Bury and Bolton, but things are looking a little grim for the Silkmen.
On a positive note, Carlisle went to Championship side Barnsley and absolutely routed them 3-0. In the end the score flattered the Tykes as Carlisle were far and away the better side and were unlucky not to score a couple more, hitting the cross bar a couple of times and a couple of fine saves from the Barnsley goalkeeper keeping the score reasonable.
Great win for Carlisle though. Who do you face next? Wednesday were supposed to play Bury, but are awaiting them to sort themselves out
