Salisbury's takeover has collapsed, and the club are to now seek to overturn the ownership of a claimed Moroccan businessman.
A statement reads:
A 5 PM deadline set by the Conference tonight to address some financial issues relating to Salisbury City FC has passed without any action being taken against the club for the time being. Salisbury City FC have asked for an extension from the league and presented them with evidence to support their claim.
Furthermore the club today have, upon legal advice, taken steps to remove the current owner, Mr Otail A.S. Touzar after information surfaced questioning the legitimacy of his takeover of the club. Following consultation with legal experts, Mr Touzar has been banned from the club and will be served with legal papers in the forthcoming days to overturn his ownership.
Touzar is reported to have slept at the club during his brief tenure, and also claimed to have removed funds from the club after failing to come good on his claimed investment.
