Bangor City Football Club have been issued with a second winding-up petition after previous bid to wind-up the club was dismissed on 6th June when a late tax bill was paid.

HM Revenue and Customs have now launched a new petition to wind-up the club, which will be heard in the High Court in London on 8th August 2018.

A spokesman for Bangor City said of the first winding-up petition: “A tax bill which was a few days late last month but has now been paid.

“We knew it was coming. They were doing their job. There was a tax bill that was a few days late, but it was paid and, as far as we are concerned, it is done and dusted and we are moving forward.”

Despite finishing second in the Welsh Premier League last season, Bangor were relegated to the Cymru Alliance after failing the license for ‘financial reasons.’

A second attempt by the HMRC to wind-up Bangor City will be heard in court on 8th August
