The winding up petition brought against Salford City Reds, or Salford Football Club Company (1914) Ltd, has now been adjourned until January 7th.
The original petition, brought by management consultants, Steuer Gregsson, was settled before the petition became a winding up order, but the original petition has now been taken over by `other parties'. Media reports over the weekend indicated that Reds players Luke Patten and Vinnie Anderson had joined the petition after not being paid.
The case will continue at the Manchester District Registry on January 7th, giving the club time to bring in the promised new investment and clear its debts.
Update: 4:15pm 29th October
The club has just issued the following official statement...
"As was reported recently, Salford City Reds were in court this morning in relation to a winding up petition brought by management consultants Steuer Gregsson.
The result of the hearing was that Steuer Greggson withdrew the petition as the matter had been settled between themselves and Salford City Reds prior to the court date.
The hearing was adjourned as expected until 7th January 2013 due to two players attaching themselves to the petition, however the club maintains that payments owed to these players will be made on time and in advance of the second court date.
This matter relates to contractual payments not due to be made until the end of November.
The Club are still in discussions regarding future investment. Meanwhile we welcome the players back to training in approximately one week and look forward to the new campaign."
