The investigation comes after a statement on behalf of Macclesfield players and staff alleged financial irregularities over pension contributions with the players saying, "This is a very serious matter which we look to act upon as a group immediately". A statement from Cheshire Police on Thursday said: "At 12.20pm today police received a report in relation to a financial matter at Macclesfield Town Football Club. "We will be reviewing the information provided to establish if any criminal offences have taken place. Where necessary we will refer information to the relevant agencies."

  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50423155 Macclesfield Town: League Two club charged with misconduct for late wages Macclesfield Town have been charged with misconduct by the English Football League and referred to a disciplinary panel after failing to pay their players on time. Players at the League Two club went on strikelast week over unpaid salaries. They went on to field youth and loan players in their 4-0 FA Cup loss to seventh-tier Kingstonian on Sunday. Meanwhile, Cheshire Police have said they have received a report in relation to a financial matter at the club. The matter, which is separate to the EFL's charge of misconduct, was reported to the police at 12:20 GMT on Thursday. "We will be reviewing the information provided to establish if any criminal offences have taken place. Where necessary we will refer information to the relevant agencies," said a police spokesperson. In relation to the misconduct charge, the EFL said it had been in discussions with the club and Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) to find a solution and recognised the "impact the non-payment of wages has on the health and wellbeing of those involved". The EFL had given the club until 16:00 GMT on Wednesday to provide information after investigating the situation. It continued: "As a result of the information provided, the EFL has notified the club of multiple charges related to failing to adhere to the terms of the contracts that are in operation. "As a result of the club fulfilling its obligations in respect of playing last night's Leasing.com Trophy fixture, the EFL has released an immediate payment of £30,000 secured through participation in this season's competition to assist in the payment of wages to players and staff." Although Macclesfield reportedly began the process of paying players and staff before the EFL's deadline on Wednesday, BBC Sport understands that only three players ultimately received their wages. The playing staff remain undecided whether to make themselves available for Saturday's League One fixture against Mansfield Town. Earlier this week, they were advised not to play or train because they were not insured, but BBC Radio Manchester have since said that health insurance premiums have now been paid and they were able to resume training on Tuesday.
  3. They can profit if they run it well. I don’t want the starting point to be driven by that self interest. i.e. land sales being required to even begin being able to run the club and getting a mate to build on said land.
  4. I don’t care if he’s going so long as someone with some credibility and cash is there to step up. It would be nice if for once in the history of our club (since ‘pinch me’) we had someone with a combination of common sense, ambition and cash, with no attached agenda around property or any other self interest. Not too much to ask is it.
  5. Caught in possession...again. Cross comes in. Iacovetti in the wrong place... again.
  6. That was pathetic by McCann for the 4th. Really poor.
  7. Maguire has made a rather rudimentary mistake there. Interesting. Anyhow, if this is indeed a director loan converted to shares we have to admit that can only be a good thing for the club.
