    On the BBC Website...

    Airdrie FC is now proceeding towards full liquidation after a final appeal to save the Club failed to produce a buyer.

    Neither the preferred bidder, nor any of the three parties that expressed a tentative interest at the time of the appeal on 19th April have lodged bids. Furthermore, no other parties have come forward during the intervening period. There are no bids on the table.

    A spokesman for Blair Nimmo commented ?Everyone involved with Airdrie FC is naturally very disappointed that no party has been able to drive through a deal to buy the Club. We have explored every possible avenue and mechanism for saving the Club in its current form however we all need to recognise that the game in Scotland is facing severe financial problems. This is compounded by the particularly difficult financial and legal circumstances facing Airdrie FC.

    ?Sadly, as there is no-one willing and able to buy the Club, we have no alternative but to market its assets for sale. Hopefully, the Club name will now be sold to a buyer determined to see Airdrie FC return as a force in Scottish football, albeit as a completely new entity. If that is the case, we will do everything we can to assist.?


    Oh dear - has the first domino toppled :(

    As a Thistle fan, I find it hard to mourn Airdrie......

    I am sure the section B bawbags will soon find another team to follow. And if the name itself is up for sale, someone will probably start up again with a clean sheet.....
