Chris Parkes suspended
Matt Southall’s public relations machine looks like juddering to a halt, unlike he and his pals’ Range Rovers.
Confirmation that long-time club secretary Chris Parkes has been suspended by Southall, pending an investigation. Parkes, one would assume was behind conversations with Tahnoon Nimer and the EFL as to what is actually going on at the club under Southall’s leadership.
Parkes has been at Charlton for over 30 years and knows where all the skeleton’s are buried. He is close to players and Lee Bowyer holds him in very high regard.
This has to concern the EFL, as it should supporters, because Parkes runs a very tight ship and has a handle on all things football related.
The EFL have now finished their prawn sandwiches and made a statement.
“As a result of not receiving the required information the Club was placed under a registration embargo and that position remains as the EFL seeks assurances that the necessary funds are available and for that funding to be placed in the Club.
The EFL’s position has been reserved and it is considering with its external advisors what further action should be taken under its Regulations.”
