    Frustrating isn’t it?

  2. Ian says:

    Indeed. Just for the purposes of clarification, we have checked this morning and the information showing for Ms Booth is genuine. I cannot offer an explanation for the comments attributed to Companies House in the Daily Post this morning.

  3. Martin says:

    Surely you should be looking forward to the “clean break” that this might represent?….

  4. Mark Barnes says:

    The reason for the Daily Post’s comments are that there are two types of disqualification: a “disqualification undertaking” and a “disqualification order”. The first is voluntary, the second is imposed by the court. Stephanie Booth claims to be voluntarily agreed to disqualification; if that’s true, it means that technically she’s subject to a “disqualification undertaking” rather than a court order. (It amounts to the same thing, however.)

    As there’s not a direct quote from Companies House to back-up the Post’s statement, I can only assume that they asked too specific a question, which didn’t take into account the possibility of a “disqualification undertaking”.

    Either way, it’s important to understand that the FA treats “disqualification undertakings” in the same way as “disqualification orders”. Stephen Vaughan at Chester, was disqualified as a consequence of an undertaking, for example.

  5. Ian says:

    Thanks for that, Mark. I was in the middle of seeking clarification over this.

    So, to be clear: presuming that this is the case, Stephanie Booth would not be able to own a shareholding of over 30% in the club until after the end of her disqualification period OR (and that is in capitals because of its relevance) act as a company director until after 27-02-12.

    Ian,

    Supporters Direct have now issued a report, confirming that in their view Booth would not currently be a “fit and proper person”: http://clients.squareeye.com/uploads/sd/WrexhamFCReportforLGIL.pdf
