SALFORD CITY REDS WINDING UP PETITION ADJOURNED AGAIN
 

Star date: 7th January 2013

SALFORD REDS GET ANOTHER MONTH

Salford City Reds has been given another month to pay its debts today as the Winding Up Petition, already adjourned from December, was put off again until February 4th.

The Winding Up Petition was brought by ex players Luke Pattern and Vinnie Anderson for an amount quoted as £60,000 but was added to by the tax office, or HMRC, which is owed, we understand, a further £291,000.

Salford City Reds now has until February 4th, or four weeks, to get its financial act together as the Winding Up Petition brought by ex players Luke Pattern and Vinnie Anderson, plus now the taxman, or HMRC, was again adjourned.

The players are owed £60,000, according to statements made at the Forever Reds Public Meeting last month (see here), while the HMRC is believed to be owed £291,000. The Petition was postponed to see if the latest investment talks surrounding the club are successful.

Salford City Reds has put out a statement confirming possible new owners…

"Salford City Reds can confirm that the result of this morning's court hearing was a further adjournment until Monday 4th February 2013" it read "This additional time has been granted following careful consideration of the current position regarding new investment into the business.

"All concerned parties agreed that there was a real possibility that a positive conclusion could be reached" it added "and that this would be preferable to the execution of the lodged winding up petition against Salford Football Club 1914 Ltd."

Reds Chairman John Wilkinson also confirmed `ongoing negotiations'…

"Everyone is working every available hour to ensure that the on-going negotiations progress forward into an outcome that secures the future success of the Salford Rugby League Club" he said "We appreciate what a stressful time this is for staff, players and supporters and thank you all for your patience and understanding.

"What today's ruling provides is the time needed to secure the investment and we are grateful for the opportunity to do so" he added "One thing is foremost in our minds - Salford's rugby club must continue for the fans of today to enjoy and for the generations of fans to come."

Yesterday, Salford Reds played the first friendly of the season, against local rivals Swinton Lions, and won 52-12 but on the Salford Reds fans forum, supporters have expressed disappointment with the turnout of only 1,811 people.

Come on pimpernel "home games on what's left of stott lane playing fields" Don't make me laugh they can't afford the rent for the playing fields.

makes me laugh, they move the club to Barton but hold a meeting on saving the club in Broughton by forever reds, I believe the head of this group said we've held it hear in the heartland of the Salford people. why did you move the club away from the willows where the people who follow the club live, not only are the management of this club brain dead the fans are not far away ever. 1,811 crowd, good luck finding a mug to take over. gates get any smaller you'll be able to hold home games on what's left of stott lane playing fields.
