MACCLESFIELD TOWN have blamed Brexit for delayed payments to players and staff as the club appeared in court after a winding-up petition was issued.

Earlier this month, employees at the League Two side asked the Football League for help after their salaries were not paid.

Macclesfield have blamed Brexit for delayed payments to players and staff

On Wednesday, Macclesfield appeared in court for the sixth time in six months after a winding-up petition was issued.

And the club’s lawyer heavily implied the reason for the payments not being made was due to Brexit.

They claimed they were waiting for “international payments”, citing Brexit was having an “impact”.

In May, when Macclesfield first had the winding-up petition adjourned, the club owed a reported £73,000.

Former boss Sol Campbell, this week named as new Southend manager, was just one to reveal he had not been paid.

At the time, a statement from the club’s employees said: “As players and staff, we remain committed and professional to honour our contracts under these extremely difficult circumstances for ourselves and our families.

“We’d like thank the fans for their continued support and backing this season so far.”

An EFL spokesperson replied: “Following the statement issued earlier today by players and other staff at Macclesfield Town, the EFL can confirm that it has today received complaints of non-payment of wages to players and staff.

“The EFL has requested the club’s observations before determining, in accordance with EFL Regulations, what steps to take whilst also assisting all parties in reaching an amicable and appropriate resolution as quickly as possible.”

At the time it was said Macclesfield were in a “similar situation” to Bury and Bolton.

The Trotters managed to survive by a matter of days, but Bury are no longer after they were expelled from the Football League and failed to complete a takeover.
