Scottish First Division Dunfermline To Go Into Voluntary Administration To Settle HMRC Debt
Published March 27, 2013
SEEKING CLARITY: FOOTBALL UK reported Dunfermline have approached PKF's Bryan Jackson to conduct the administration process, "but the appointment will need to be approved" at the Court of Session in conjunction with HMRC. Jackson's previous tasks "have included similar roles at Clyde, Clydebank, Motherwell, Dundee and Portsmouth." PFA Scotland CEO Fraser Wishart welcomed the move as it averted the "calamitous" prospect of liquidation, "for the time being at least." Wishart: "At least there is some kind of clarity to the situation and we welcome that. I'm pleased it's Bryan Jackson, somebody I have worked with many times before and who knows the football game inside out" (FOOTBALL UK, 3/26). The BBC reported Dunfermline captain Jordan McMillan said that "the last few months have been 'horrible' for Pars players and remains worried some could lose their jobs." McMillan said, "That's something we don't want to see. We're powerless and just have to get on with the task in hand" (BBC, 3/26).
