Stockport County, now in administration for nine months and counting, are due to have their case reviewed yet again by the Football League, with the meeting scheduled for this Thursday (11th February).
Hatters fans are under the impression that the Football League is still concerned about two main issues. The 'primacy rule', where clubs sharing a ground with another sport are expected by the Football League to have primacy rights over fixtures, has led to questions about the relationship with Sale Sharks, who have control of Edgeley Park. The second concern is related: the Football League is reported to be unhappy about the status of County's tenancy agreement on the stadium.
Time is running out for Stockport to reach some agreements that will stand up to scrutiny and get them out of administration. Although the rules appear somewhat opaque, most commentators feel it likely that if the club has not resolved the issues and exited administration by the time of the next Football League AGM it will be in danger of expulsion from the League.
