Bermuda footballer Milan Butterfield’s immediate future is up in the air, with his club, Nuneaton Borough, facing liquidation after pulling out of the Southern Central Premier League.

The non-league club was served an eviction notice from their stadium in November and said they are facing “insurmountable challenges” and considering the “liquidation process”.

The Warwickshire outfit have been liquidated twice previously in their history.

Midfielder Butterfield joined Nuneaton from Alfreton, who play in the league above, the Vanarama National League North, last summer.

“We regret to announce that Nuneaton Borough FC will be withdrawing from this season’s Southern Central Premier League,” read a club statement.

“Despite the dedicated efforts of our sponsors and officials, the club faces insurmountable challenges in maintaining operations.

“Our legal advisors have confirmed that the offer put forward to purchase Liberty Way will not be considered, and no new lease will be given to any entity.

“Unfortunately, armed with this information, our future investors have had to withdraw any future support. Furthermore, without additional investment or new investors to provide financial support, the club is unable to continue trading.

“In light of these circumstances, we are now considering the liquidation process. This decision comes with a heavy heart, and we deeply appreciate the unwavering support from our loyal fans and the football community during this challenging time.”

It has been reported that several players, including Leroy Lita, a former Premier League striker, captain Scott McManus, forward Matt Stenson, and manager Jimmy Ginnelly have all left the club.
