Walker Morris sports lawyers advise administrator of Farnborough FC
Lawyers from the Walker Morris Football Finance Group have been appointed to advise the administrator of Farnborough Football & Social Club following the announcement of its administration on 26 April.
According to James Moore, a specialist sports lawyer at Walker Morris, the club has struggled under the weight of historic debts recently and this has culminated in a winding-up petition being issued by HM Revenue & Customs.
He added that action had to be taken to protect the club, which is why the administration application was issued at court. The club now has an opportunity to be rescued via a sale out of administration.
