    • During the close season of the 2006-07 season the club was taken over by a ‘mysterious’ backer that eventually became fatal as the bailiffs moved in. A shareholders committee was formed to run the affairs of the club. In order to survive it was decided to put the Club into Administration and relegation from the Conference North. The club continued and was reformed as Lancaster City FC Limited and then became founder members of the restructured Unibond League First Division North for the 2007-08 season that ended in a mid-table position.

      The following year the Dolly Blues improved and were just three points short of that fifth and final play-off position. In 2009-10 a further improvement was made in what was the last season of a 17 year Unibond League Sponsorship. But that illusive promotion drive ended, having topped the league for much of the season, with only two minutes remaining of the last game of the season with a penalty in the play-off final against Colwyn Bay, a team 21 points behind City. The team did win a Trophy with the League Fair Play Award but was a scant reward.

      The Club ended last season with three trophies but fell just three points short of a league play-off place. The President's Cup was deservedly won after defeating four sides from the top five. The prestigious F.A. National Fair Play and Respect Award, representing clubs from Tiers 1 to 4, was won, and the League Fair Play Award retained.
