Ablett fears for future of Stockport County

Stockport boss Gary Ablett has warned the club will cease to exist unless their off field problems are resolved quickly. County have been in administration for 10 months and last week the Football League refused to approve the latest takeover attempt by the Melrose Consortium.

It leaves County facing expulsion from the Football League if a takeover is not completed by the summer, and Ablett said: "It's massively frustrating. I'm in contact with the two lads who hope to take over and they're always positive, but one thing or another always seems to stand in the way. I hope it works for them.

"I really don't understand why it's taking so long but it's important that if there's anyone out there with the money to come in, that they get in touch with the administrators as soon as possible because it needs sorting out sooner rather than later.

"If we don't sort it out there might not be a club here come July. That's the inevitability of it. So all the planning that we're doing now, in terms of whether we're in League One or League Two, might all be a waste of time. We'll have to wait and see."
