Witney United future at risk after license revoked

 

Witney United Football Club chairman Steve Lake has warned that the Uhlsport Hellenic League side’s future could be at risk.

Lake made the claim after the club had its license to sell alcohol by West Oxfordshire District Council after 84 alleged crimes were reported at the Polythene UK Stadium.  The decision leaves the club with a hole in its revenue stream, with £500 a month coming in from events, between 20-30% of their income. 

Lake said: “Witney United FC will be submitting a new licence application – in conjunction with all concerned – and move forward from the position we find overselves in.”

He added: “The only serious revenue we have is through the licensed events at the club.”
