Colin Hendry declared bankrupt
Rovers legendary defender Colin Hendry has been formally declared bankrupt at a Lancashire court.
Hendry was served with a demand for payment by his creditors on 12 March, a court in Blackpool has been told.
Hendry himself had tried to stagger the payments in a structured manner but the creditors he owed rejected these claims.
No figures were given by the court as to the total figure or the breakdown of debt that Colin owed but suffice to say it was fairly large for him to apply to be bankrupt.
District Judge Michael Buckley of Blackpool County Court granted the bankruptcy order.
Hendry in the 90's was Rovers premier defender after two spells at the club and enjoyed a terrific rapport with the fans at Ewood Park.
Hendry has suffered personal heartbreak recently in a non-financial capacity as his wife died last year after a botched operation.
Here at VB we wish Colin all the best.
