A SECOND winding up order by the HMRC in regards to Bangor City has been thrown out at the High Court.

The issue stemmed from an unpaid tax bill totalling £10,500 that the club insisted was paid in full only “a few days late”.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs also initiated a petition which was also rejected in June, but in this latest case Chief Registrar Judge Nicholas Briggs was told the debt had been paid and he agreed to dismiss the claims.

The club’s Twitter account said following the verdict: “As previously stated.... The Winding up order would be thrown out. We move on and look forward to Saturday.”

Citizens’ officials described the row as the HMRC “making a mountain out of a molehill”, and Craig Harrison’s men can now concentrate on earning promotion back to the JD Welsh Premier League after being relegated despite a second-place finish after their appeal to obtain an FAW Domestic Licence was rejected.

They begin with a home clash against newly promoted Buckley Town at the VSM Stadium on Saturday (2.30pm).
