Bangor City have avoided a second winding-up order after paying a £10,000 tax bill. The club had been taken to London’s High Court by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The case was dismissed by Chief Registrar Judge Nicholas Briggs on Wednesday 8th August, when he was told the outstanding tax bill had been paid.

The club were also in court in June when another petition by HMRC was dismissed. The club said the debt had been paid only a few days late.

Bangor City were relegated at the end of last season, despite finishing second in the Welsh Premier League, after failing the ’Tier One’ License which allows them to play in the league. The license failure also prevented the club competing in this season’s Europa League Qualifying games.

City begin their new league campaign with a largely changed squad, in the Cymru Alliance League this Saturday, 11th August, when they play Buckley Town, Kick-Off 2.30pm.
