An East Yorkshire football club is facing voluntary relegation due to financial difficulties.

North Ferriby United, who won the FA Trophy earlier this season, could be demoted from the Conference North.

Defender Nathan Peat claims the owners – Eman and Steve Forster, the daughter and son-in-law of Hull City owner Assem Allam – have pulled every penny from the club.

He says this could see them demoted one or even two leagues.

Peat, who has previously played for the likes of Hull and York City, is one of several players at the club to discuss the subject on social media.

North Ferriby beat Wrexham on penalties to lift the FA Trophy at Wembley in March, coming back from two goals down in normal time. But just a fortnight later the owners decided to put the club up for sale.

Responding to the comments on social media, the club denies any money is being pulled out. It claims the Forsters have actually put more money in – and will continue to do so until new owners are found.
