A petition by HM Revenue and Customs to wind up Bangor City Football Club over an unpaid tax bill has been thrown out by a High Court judge. The case was brought before the court in London on Wednesday but was dismissed because the bill has now been paid.

A spokesman for Bangor City said “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, the club were relegated to the Cymru Alliance after failing the license for ‘financial reasons.’

The amount that was overdue has not been disclosed.
