Coventry City appeal over 10-point deduction for administration


Coventry City have decided to appeal against their 10-point deduction for going into administration.

A High Court hearing in London last week ruled that the League One club was "in administration", triggering the automatic Football League punishment.

But Sisu, the consortium which owns the Sky Blues, argued the division of the club that is in administration did not hold any assets or staff of its own.
And they have now officially submitted an appeal to the League.

Last Tuesday's High Court ruling decided that the subsidiary, Coventry City Football Club Ltd, owns the 'golden share', which guarantees membership of the League.

But City's owners' argument remains that Coventry City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd, who are not in administration, are the company with whom the Football League should be dealing.

The league have seen all this before with the Portsmouth farce and also with leicester City, Coventry haven't got a leg to stand on. If the golden share company has been transferred to another company then Cov were incorrectly registered to play so will de disaqualified anyway. Another club who spent too big to stay in the prem and lost the lot, see Bradford City.
