Motion text

That this House notes the decision of the High Court on February to place Blackpool FC into receivership because of the failure of the owners to carry out its instructions; notes that despite the crises produced as a result of this and the conflicts by the previous owners picked with supporters, the hard-working manager, Terry McPhillips, his coaches and his players have done an excellent job in League One so far this season; urges the EFL not to deduct penalty points as a result of the receivership as this would unfairly penalise the players and management and could jeopardise the Club's League One status; and hopes for the new ownership that can remedy the failings that has led to the receivership.
