New winding-up threat at Bangor City

Bangor City FC

Bangor City are facing a second winding-up bid in the High Court.

A judge at the Old Bailey dismissed a petition from HMRC officials in a dispute about an overdue tax bill last month.

The club accused tax officials of making a “mountain out of a molehill” over the bill for May which was paid a few days late.

City were relegated from the Welsh Premier in April after the FAW refused a domestic licence. The club finished runners-up but missed out on qualifying for the Europa League because of their demotion.

At the time, Bangor management said their licence bid had failed on financial grounds, but insisted the club’s books were in order.

City, under new manager Craig Harrison, are due to start their first season in the Huws Gray Alliance on Saturday 11th August – in the same week as the High Court hearing on the HMRC’s petition.

The club has yet to comment on the case.
