The chairman and secretary of the Northampton Town Supporters’ Trust will be meeting with the leader of Northampton Borough Council later this week to discuss the ongoing situation at the club.

James Averill, the spokesman for the supporters’ trust, said Cobblers fans wanted clarity about what the council’s intentions were in giving the club three weeks to pay back a 10.25 million loan.

James Averill, spokesman for the trust, said: “We would like to meet with the council to understand their intentions a bit more.

“The fans are the lifeblood of the club but they are being kept in the dark about the problems. It is an ongoing saga and we are hoping to hear something positive.”

Mr Averill said: “Many of the fans have lost patience with David Cardoza due to all the missed deadlines but some are still willing to give him some time.

“We are just waiting to see what happens. We are all sick of the uncertainty and what a resolution to end the speculation.”

Councillor Mary Markham, leader of Northampton Borough Council, said: “We have arranged to meet the chairman and secretary of the supporters’ trust later this week and we are looking forward to discussing with them the current situation regarding the loan and our on-going support for the football club.”

A court action scheduled for Monday involving the Buckingham Group and County Developments (Northampton) Limited was adjourned until later next month.
