Cash-strapped League One football club Plymouth Argyle has not paid its players this month as it faces financial meltdown, it emerged today.
Bosses have been unable to pay any members of staff for November after the club’s bank account was frozen.
Plymouth Argyle Football Company Limited faces being wound up next week as it goes to London’s High Court for the third time in a year over unpaid tax bills.
It is understood all first team players at the Devon club are missing their monthly wages, which are now three days late.
Manager Peter Reid admitted it was a ”difficult time” but said he was preparing the team as usual for their clash with Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday.
He said: ”I’m just getting on with my job and dealing with the football side. I know it’s a difficult time for everybody concerned at the football club, but hopefully the board will sort it all out.”
Last month, Argyle executive director Keith Todd admitted there had been ”a couple of delays” in paying wages, and called the situation ”embarrassing and unfortunate”.
HM Revenue and Customs has brought winding-up petitions against both the Plymouth Argyle Football Company Limited and Home Park Properties Limited.
Both will appear before a High Court judge next on December 8.
