CFU view on Maison appointment

CFU are surprised, disappointed and shocked at events currently taking place at The Deva Stadium.

Whilst the players, we believe, have still to be paid from November and the current
manager is working miracles in what can be some of the most difficult circumstances ever experienced by a Chester manager, Stephen Vaughan, currently banned from acting as a director by The Department of Trade, has appeared to appoint Morell Maison as Director of Football.

 

CFU feel that this appointment is totally unnecessary and can only undermine the excellent work of both the manager and the players at this very difficult time.


Mr Maison's time at Halesowen was one of great turbulence for the club; being expelled from the FA Cup and FA Trophy, going into administration and reports of financial irregularities.


Maison also recieved a twelve month touchline ban after clashing with one of his own players and the former Chief Executive, Guy Simpson, who arrived at the club on the invitation of Maison, was in August 2009 charged with fraudulent evasion of tax duty in the region of £4.5 million.


Once again we call upon Vaughan and his family to make real efforts to sell the club at a reasonable price to genuine potential purchasers. In the meanwhile we ask him to reconsider his approach to Maison who, we feel has nothing to offer to CCFC and use the money which would be paid to him to pay some of the unpaid players.


We would also like to thank the manager and the current players for their great professionalism under these very trying circumstances.

The City Fans United committee would like to wish all CFU members, and Chester City fans across the globe, a Happy New Year.
