The High Court case to decide the ownership of Salisbury City has been adjourned for seven days.

A five-person consortium are fighting to take control of the club from current chairman Outail Touzar, who has been in place since May.

Touzar did not attend Thursday's hearing but the judge granted the Moroccan businessman a further week to submit his evidence.

Earlier this week, the club were given 14 days to resolve their money issues.

They were ordered on Monday to find £14,000 to settle debts with Revenue & Customs to avoid being wound up.

Salisbury have been plagued by off-field issues throughout the summer and are not currently a member of any division of non-league, having being expelled from the Football Conference for failing to pay debts.
