Former Worksop chief Martin McIntosh hopes his former side can pull through after what has been a turbulent week.

The future of the Tigers, last season’s Evo-Stik Premier play-off semi-finalists, looks uncertain after their sole financial backer Jason Clark left the club last week.

That signalled a resignation from the league by the Tigers, although a request for that to be rescinded has since been rejected.

The club have now stated that they “are examining what lines of appeal are open to us and what the next steps are.”

Buxton boss McIntosh, who was manager of Town between October 2010 and September 2011, now hopes that his former club can survive the bitter blow.

He said: “When one man (Clark) makes all the decisions and then all of a sudden he leaves, it is always going to be a struggle for a club.”

“The problem with Worksop is partly that they don’t own their own ground, so they have no assets which makes it difficult.

“I managed there for a year but we didn’t have a base to play at.

“We played at Retford’s ground which was far from ideal.

“I hope they sort it out.

“Like us (Buxton), they’re a club with a good history and it’s a shame to see any club fall into trouble.”
