Boston United Demotion Confirmed

Boston United Demotion Confirmed

Boston United have confirmed their relegation to the Blue Square North (formerly Conference North). The decision was made at the Conference AGM Yesterday.

It is understood the reason for the relegation to the Conference North was due to the fact footballing debts were included in the CVA which is not allowed.

Swindon Town drew 1-1 with Boston at home whilst beating The Pilgrims 3-1 away last season.

Altrincham who were relegated from the Conference last season will now stay up.

You have to feel sorry for Boston United fans who have been caught in the middle of this mess, however it seemed unlikely that Boston would have been able to complete their fixtures in the Conference due to crippling debts.

Boston had already been evicted from their ground and players have not been paid since February.

Boston who were promoted to the Football League in 2002 had been the centre of controversy before when rumours came up that players had been paid under the table in the season they were promoted.

The club ended up gaining massive debts after signing stars such as Paul Gascoigne and Julian Joachim who they could not afford.

The following statement has been released by Boston United.

Statement From Boston United FC

Boston United have been demoted to the Blue Square North division, formerly known as Conference North.

The decision was taken at the 'Conference' AGM in Bournemouth on Friday and Saturday and further details will be featured here on bufc.co.uk when available.

I think it is wrong, these smaller clubs have no chance of survival, it's as though the big clubs are the only ones that the FA etc care about. Why is there no one there to help clubs like Boston. This is killing the game for clubs that do not mult-millionaires as owners.
