Leeds Fans, Don't Blame Scally!

Leeds Fans, Don't Blame Scally!

Gillingham Chairman Paul Scally has hit out at comments made by Ken Bates regarding the poetic justice to be should Leeds United send Gillingham down on the last day of the season, which they did with a 2-1 victory thanks to Tresor KKKKAAAANNNNDDDOOOLLLL!

Mr Scally was one of the 63 Football League chairmen that voted for a 15 point penalty against Leeds for failing to come out of administration with a valid CVA in place. Leeds supreme Ken Bates claimed that it would be “poetic justice” if the Whites were to send them down.

In return, perhaps ignoring his side’s demise Mr Scally said:

“I was one of 63 chairmen who voted to support the action against Leeds for misdemeanours carried out by the people running Leeds at the time.”

“There were 36,000 out there who think I'm the reason they lost 15 points and that clearly wasn't the case”

“They broke the regulations, got punished by the Football League board of directors and we were asked whether we supported the board,” Scally told BBC Sport.

“It was an anonymous vote and I was happy to come out and say I was one of the ones who supported the board.”

Perhaps Mr Scally, it was admitting it that got you into trouble. Regardless of that, I do hope that the man, the club and supporters genuinely enjoy League Two football next season.

Toodles!
