Salisbury City's transfer embargo lifted

Salisbury City are free to sign new players after their transfer embargo was lifted.

The Blue Square Premier club were told they could not make any new signings in December after failing to pay debts owed to HM Revenue and Customs.

But a takeover from a consortium means the Whites can hold talks with players.

"I am pleased to say that we have come to an agreement. We are 100% committed," new chairman William Harrison-Allan said.

"We've been working on this since July, bankrolling the club since then.

He's very much wanted by the club as a whole and he helped the team get out of trouble last year

"We've got a few things to sort out with Blue Square, but they should let us replace players we lost because of the embargo."

Central defender Chris Todd is likely to be one of the first targets, after two successful loan spells at the Raymond McEnhill stadium.

"He's a great organiser of the team," said Harrison-Allan.

"He's very much wanted by the club as a whole and he helped the team get out of trouble last year."

Under the agreement signed with HMRC, Salisbury City's debts will be paid off over the next three years. The club will also have to give around 25% of any money earned from cup runs to HMRC.
