DAFC Interim Administrator comments on SFL decision

East End Park

Bryan Jackson, BDO*  business restructuring partner and interim administrator of Dunfermline Athletic FC, commented on the SFL decision:

"I received a fair hearing from the SFL board and knew that there would be some sanctions imposed by the SFL because of the administration. The decision to deduct 15 points from the club is disappointing but expected. This will undoubtedly make what is already a difficult job even harder.

"We will use our best endeavours to have a CVA approved before the start of the next season and, if successful, the further sanctions proposed for the future will not be imposed."

"However, at least this decision means that we know where we stand and what has to be done on and off the park. The next few months will be difficult but, I believe, with the support of Pars United, the fans and wider community of Dunfermline that there is some hope for a positive outcome.

"Whilst I was encouraged by the support and all the donations at last Saturday's match I cannot stress enough that we need the fans to continue turning up until the end of the season if the club is to survive through the summer."

* PKF merged with BDO on 2nd April 2013 and will now operate under the BDO brand. This makes no difference to the individuals involved or the process of the administration of Dunfermline Athletic FC.

15 league points deducted
