Football club chairman Peter Ridsdale has been disqualified from acting as a company director for seven-and-a-half years following an investigation by The Insolvency Service.
The former Leeds United, Barnsley and Cardiff City chairman has given an undertaking to the secretary of state for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), barring him from acting as a company director and from managing or in any way controlling a company.
Ridsdale did not dispute that between May 2007 and March 2009 he acted improperly and “in breach of his duties” to his company W H Sports Group Limited (WHSG) by channelling payments into his personal bank account.
