Blyth Spartans have confirmed the club have had to suspend ‘all wage payments to employees forthwith.’
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect clubs, the National League North side explain:
Like all sports clubs in the United Kingdom, Blyth Spartans AFC is facing an unprecedented situation.
The club has had no income since it’s last home game on February 15th and will have no further income for the foreseeable future.
Wages were paid in full last week but we, therefore, have no other option than to suspend all wage payments to employees forthwith.
The government and the League have announced schemes to assist with this disaster but as of today, none of the schemes are operational.
The club will pursue each funding initiative as it becomes operational and would hope to pay outstanding wages – if funds materialise.
The club’s Executive Committee will do whatever it takes to ensure the survival of Blyth Spartans
The National League has been advised of this action.
