Dover Athletic chairman refuses to pay £40,000 fine

Dover Athletic chairman Jim Parmenter has refused to pay the £40,000 fine imposed on his club by the National League due to a lack of funds.

After facing a tough financial crisis due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dover Athletic was forced to furlough its players and staff last month. They had refused to play any of their scheduled fixtures, which is why the National League fined them and docked 12 of their points for the next season. 

Jim Parmenter condemned the actions of the National League that would only further lead them towards insolvency. “There will be legal action on this because it's time somebody stood up and said 'this is not right'” said Parmenter. Source:
