Northwich Victoria's solicitors refuse to give up hope that the club can stay at Victoria Stadium

Northwich Guardian: Vics evicted, but threaten legal action Vics evicted, but threaten legal action

SOLICITORS acting for Northwich Victoria could go to court to help the club return home.

The Evo-Stik Northern Premier League outfit were evicted tonight, Thursday, from the Victoria Stadium after it was bought by a firm based on the same street.

But they may ask a judge to intervene.

“The club intends to leave peacefully to avoid a fractious situation,” said Paul Dodds, from Else Solicitors.

“However if a diplomatic solution can’t be reached then injunctive action is likely to follow next week.”

Bailiffs working for Deloitte Touche, de-facto landlords at the nine-acres site since 2008, told the club on Monday they had to leave the ground today.

They intend to hand the keys to Thor Specialities UK, who last night confirmed to the Guardian that they had bought the ground.

It is still not known what their plans are.

Dodds said: “We’ve tried to enter into discussions with the proposed purchaser, but they’ve not responded.”

Northwich, currently second in the Evo-Stik NPL top tier, are due to play at Frickley Athletic this weekend.

A Mid Cheshire FA Senior Cup semi final against Winsford, scheduled for next Tuesday, will now be played at their neighbours’ Barton Stadium home.

However no plan is in place for when Marine visit in the league on Saturday week.

“We’ll continue to work around the clock with a view to finding a way for the club to continue playing at the Victoria Stadium,” said Doods.

“All avenues will be explored in order to achieve that.”
