Diamonds chairman denies finance problems

Rushden & Diamonds Football Club chairman Liam Beasant has refuted speculation that the club is on the verge of a financial crisis but said that such rumours are exacerbating the situation.

Beasent, who took over as chairman last month following the resignation of Gary Calder, said that the Blue Square Bet Premier side ‘isn't about to sink tomorrow’ but did admit the sale of goalkeeper Joe Day to Peterborough had been a boost to the club’s accounts whilst urging fans to help the club’s cash flow through 'early bird' season ticket sales for next season.

The Diamonds are currently awaiting the outcome of a Football Conference charge in relation to Rule 18 for allegedly submitting inaccurate information, relating to submissions made under the Football Conference's financial reporting regulation.
