Morecambe Football Club responds to EFL charges.
In response to the EFL's announcement that one charge has been brought against Morecambe Football Club and two charges brought against the Club's Owner, in relation to a failure in September to replenish funds required by the EFL to be held in a deposit account following the Agreed Decision reached between the EFL and the Club in August, the Board of Directors wishes to make the following short statement:
Firstly, these are misconduct charges that have been referred by the EFL to an independent disciplinary commission to take place in the New Year. Bond Group have therefore instructed specialist sports lawyers to defend the Club's and the Owner's position at that commission.
Secondly, the Board remains focused on the priority of ensuring that Morecambe Football Club meets all its obligations, which means working with Bond Group to prevent cashflow issues and doing everything within its powers to expedite the process of finding new ownership as quickly as possible.
