Farsley Celtic go into extra time

Posted by John Beech on June 30, 2009

With a surprise comeback, Celtic have manged to scrape into Administration with just hours to spare, preventing their winding-up by HMRC (1 and 2).  This is not an end to their problems by any means – the debt of £200,000 to HMRC is still there.

HMRC will continue to press them.  Other clubs who have faced the wrath of HMRC recently include Accrington Stanley (£300,000), Merthyr Tydfil (£7,000), Bournemouth (£300,000) and Hyde United (£200,000).  Expect more close shaves, with some bad results ultimately!

The size of the debt to Coors Brewery is not yet clear.
