Football centre enters administration 11 February 2014

A North East based football centre founded by ex-Newcastle United manager Kenny Dalglish, has entered administration.

Established in 2006, and later run by former Sunderland player Paul Bracewell and care home entrepreneur Alison Morgan, the company built training and sports facilities based in Gosforth Park, Newcastle upon Tyne.

23 staff are employed at the company which continues to trade as usual.

The site includes six small football pitches, a full-size international pitch, ten team dressing rooms, party rooms, a players’ lounge and a fitness club.

Allan Kelly and Matt Higgins of Tait Walker Turnaround & Insolvency were appointed as joint administrators, and are currently seeking a buyer for the business.

Kelly said: “The site is well invested and has a well-established name and reputation. It is currently operating as normal under our supervision.

“Interest in the site from potential purchasers is high and we are in discussions with a number of parties regarding a sale. I am hopeful this will be concluded within the coming weeks.”
