Southend United FC face another winding-up petition

Thu 1st Jul 2010 | Football Club Administration

Southend United Football Club has been served with another winding-up petition by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs over unpaid tax according to the BBC.

The League Two side owes around £200,000 from April and May this year.

The club, which has appeared several times in the High Court over unpaid tax debts in the last 12 months, is due back there on 8 July.

Chairman Ron Martin said: "I will ensure that the entire sum is settled before the hearing."

He added: "And I will continue to ensure that the necessary finances are in place in order to steer this ship into calmer waters.

"HMRC were quick off the mark as they are with football clubs and of course are entitled to be."

A statement on the club's official website said: "Southend United has been subject to several winding-up petitions over the past 12 months but the club has always met their debt in full, albeit late."

The Blues have slashed their wage bill in recent weeks by releasing key players and are still under a Football League transfer embargo due to delays in paying staff salaries.
