BARRY'S MASSIVE DEBT REVEALED TO FANS
THE full extent of Barry Town's financial problems was spelt out to supporters at a meeting at Jenner Park last night.
Debts were reported as being "hundreds of thousands of pounds", and supporters were told that the club needs 100,000 just to see it through the rest of August, with players and other staff not having been paid for the last two months.
In fact, only a donation from the Supporters Club on Friday meant that the players had some money over the past weekend, and club director Dr Liz Davies met the players on Monday to explain the situation.
There are doubts as to whether Barry will be able to fulfil all their fixtures this season and the Welsh Premier had agreed to delay this Friday's opening game against Aberystwyth at Jenner Park, if necessary.
However, following Monday's meeting, Dr Davies said: "All the players, bar one, want to fulfil our fixture on Friday.
"Scott Morgan has had approaches from other clubs and we have encouraged him to talk to them."
Dr Davies told Sunday's meeting that the next 7 to 21 days are crucial for the club, and urged all shareholders to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting on 1 September when it is hoped that a new consortium of local business people can take over the club.
Supporters Club chairman Tim Johnson has set a target of supporters raising 20,000 by the end of this week to help save the Dragons.
