THE planned creditors' meeting for Darlington Football Club has been adjourned for one week.

The meeting about the company voluntary arrangement (CVA) was due to take place tomorrow but has been put back to midday on Thursday, June 25.

A spokesman for the club said it was because of "unavoidable circumstances" and the club had written to all creditors.

The CVA requires creditors who are owed 75 per cent of the debt to vote in favour of the proposals for it to be passed.

Unsecured non-footballing creditors have been offered just 0.9p in the pound.

However, because debts to former chairman George Houghton, Darlington FC Investments, Darlington FC Holdings and to mortgage holders Philip Scott and Graham Sizer make up a large part of the debt, it is expected to be approved.

The meeting will take place in the Ron Greener Lounge of the club's Northern Echo Darlington Arena.
