Petition to the FA to allow Nuneaton Town to revert to Nuneaton Borough as soon as is possible
In 2008, Stadiasafe Ltd, the trading name of Nuneaton Borough AFC went into liquidation. A result of this was that the Birmingham FA imposed a name change on the club, and demanded that the Borough suffix be dropped. At the time this was accepted as a necessity by both fans and the board, however the same penalty has not been applied to other clubs, most notably Halifax who retained their Town suffix, despite a reformation also. The club also suffered a two league demotion, which we believe is more than penalty enough for the situation the club found itself in. We are not looking to get away scot free with this; we just feel that the punishment is too severe. This is a complete injustice, and there needs to be a uniformed punishment for clubs, therefore, the suffix Borough must be reinstated immediately. The name change does not affect those owed money by the former club. It only affects the history and tradition of what was once a famous name in non league football. With the financial climate as it is, football clubs should be receiving help from the FA to survive, they should not have their identities stolen from the fans for the sake of pure bureaucracy.
