Farnborough given 14-day deadline by Football Conference


The Football Conference have given Farnborough 14 days to comply with certain conditions before being allowed to start their season.

The Hampshire side had their first two Conference South games of the campaign postponed last Friday after failing to meet the league's criteria.

Boro exited administration last week following a buy-out by a consortium headed by manager Spencer Day.

Until the conditions are met Boro will not be allowed to play any fixtures.

That could see their next three matches, against Maidenhead United, Bath City and Eastbourne Borough, re-arranged.

Farnborough's opening two games were postponed after the Boro FC Ltd consortium, headed by Day and Robert Prince, were not able to meet the Conference's criteria to transfer membership of the league to the new company before a deadline last Friday.

The club were handed with a 14-day deadline at a meeting with representatives of the league in London on Wednesday.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live's Non League Football Show on Sunday, Day said: "We have put out an awful lot of money to bring the football club out of administration and done everything by the book.

"We have a CVA which needs to be paid over the next period of years.

"We have paid all our football creditors in full, and that was a fairly substantial sum of money.

"We need to be a sustainable football club and need to create sustainability. We don't want to be in the boom and bust position as we have been before."
