I see after all the shite they have been through, Bury FC and Bury AFC seem unable to get their shite together so they still have one club with a ground but no league place and another with a league place but no ground.

Interesting times at Fleetwood.... https://www.thebusinessdesk.com/northwest/news/2114944-lancashire-energy-company-owner-found-guilty-of-fraud-charges

This is the same guy who threatened to stop funding the club if the Tories didn't win the election in 2019.

It may even be a bit worse, on the ownership side at least.  I'd presume the club (STFC) can make a good claim for ignorance when it comes to Standing being a potential owner - we'd likely say Power was owner, told us as much and all the paperwork said as much and that Standing simply gave us some cash.  Power vs Standing on being owner could still be resolved in Standing's favour and us have a defence against any charge.  More likely we run into trouble on the fact Standing was an agent.  Although everything is clears as mud.

What is the likely punishment for the club if it's found that we broke rules when Standing was an agent when invested in the club? (allegedly)

Thanks - and IIRC we've got the potential money aside to cover that cost I think. It was stated in the AB minutes if I'm not mistaken.

Newport on the verge of a takeover, 2 bids have come in apparently.

Newport recorded a financial loss of 1.2m last year and face a shortfall in their operational budget for the current season.

If they are owned by the Supporters Trust one has to wonder who is funding these losses?

What percentage of shares will be sold for this fine?

Talking of these losses I found a few of these for (then) L2 teams for the 21/22 season courtesy of Keiran Maguire.

Salford City lost 56,000 a week in 2021/22 but had cash in the bank at end of season due to share issues and owner loans. Total losses over the years now exceed 15 million

Colchester lost almost 2m in 2021/22, taking total losses to over 35m. The club is funded via owner loans of over 31m

Bradford Lost 299,000.
It cost the club 410,203 to play at Valley Parade during 21/22 season - this is just ground rent.
Playing budget was 3m in comparison to 2.7m for the 19/20 season. This season budget nearer 3.5m.

Leyton Orient lost 2.3m in 21/22.

Doncaster Rovers lost 1.07 million in 21/22 taking total losses to 33.6 million. Losses covered by owner share purchases.

Barrow lost 725k in 2021/22, their second season back in EFL League Two. Losses were underwritten by fresh share issue by owners.

Swindon Town gone from a 1.1m loss to a 158k profit.

Crewe made a profit of 153k in 2021/22.

AFC Wimbledon operating losses fell to 850k.

Thats the only ones I can find at the moment though.

Losses <> Cash

Newport traded at a profit for four years before the one quoted and were carrying nearly 900k in the bank in 2021.  That had been drained to nearly 400k at end of 2022 financial year though.  The club does not carry any historical "hard" debt - so  very few loans < 100k.  They reacted to this loss by cutting costs significantly, aiming for a neutral budget in 2024 and confirmed access to funding and a payment arrangement with the Ground owners, which it seems most of any unpaid bills were sat.

Gives us a good idea of how much Power was fleecing us all for on a yearly basis then. Must have been at least half a million quid a year to him and then more to his cronies.

I can remember being told by a mate of a mate in the tap that I was paranoid and we had nothing to be worried about with Power. I do hope I run in to him soon and remind him of that conversation.
