Cherries wait on League decision


The Football League have deferred a decision on whether AFC Bournemouth will be hit by another points deduction for going into administration.

In a statement, the League say they are awaiting the "necessary paperwork", before making a decision.

The Cherries were docked 10 points last season, which consigned them to relegation from League One.

The likelihood is that they will face a further 15-point deduction for the start of their League Two campaign.

That is because the League's preferred method of exiting administration - a Company Voluntary Arrangement - was not passed at a meeting of Bournemouth's creditors.
