Always sad to see a club go under.

They've been very much mis-managed terribly these last couple of years, and that statement is written terribly with basic errors everywhere. Another club copulated up by poor running

Did they through over ambition get above themselves, over reliant on one person who eventually lost interest.

Maybe they did but what they achieved was creditable... until the bubble burst when their owners started mixing things up

I was only thinking the other day about clubs who rise from nowhere and then disappear; Rushden of course springing to mind

But then some do seem to be able to sustain things... Fleetwood for example

I remember going to see them play Goole back in 2005 in front of about 150 fans totally ( maybe they had about 25 there?)

If anyone had told me back then that they'd be an established third tier club I'd not have believed it

So in some ways you have to follow the dream and hope it's for the long term, not the short term as with North Ferriby

Shame for their genuine fans of course -  I expect there'll now be plenty of alternative activity about to take place on their ground as housing developers start sniffing around

I’d bet the majority of the old time NF supporters had a premonition that this might happen even when the club was doing well. It all seemed a bit too good to be true didn’t it? That level of support was just not ever sustainable, the income needed to cover running expenses was never going to be there and the whole thing relied on the largesse of one person. Take that away and ..... crash. Those local fans are now worse off than they were to start with.

According to a brief search on the internet, the outstanding debt was less than £8000...
Surely they could have drummed that small amount up.

They could have got most of that £8k through one bucket collection at BP, KC and GP. I suspect that is not the real issue.
I believe the owner wanted to move the club to the other side of Hull - I think linked to some sort of land development scheme - and took his bat home when he didn’t get his way. May not have gotallmyfactsright (getyerfactsrart?).

That's what kept Hull City afloat
