Binos face renewed eviction calls

Last updated : 01 June 2010 By BBC Sport

Debt-ridden Stirling Albion could be evicted from their ground if they do not pay £100,000 owed to Stirling Council in the next seven days.The newly promoted First Division club rent Forthbank Stadium from the local council, who claim they are owed rent and other dues.

The council plan to commence legal action on 8 June to recover the costs.

Albion are about £1.5m in debt and have survived two winding-up orders over unpaid tax in the 12 months.

It is the second time in four months that the council have threatened to evict Stirling Albion over unpaid rent.

A plan to sell Albion's naming rights for £50,000 a year was rejected by the Scottish Football Association in January.

Stirling have been up for sale since June, when owner and chairman Peter McKenzie announced plans to step down.

The council-owned stadium is managed by the local authority's arms-length sports development company Active Stirling.
