Tax officials have officially dropped a winding-up order against Prestatyn Town after it was saved from closure.
HMRC lawyers told the High Court on Monday that the Bastion Gardens club had paid its outstanding debt of £53,000 ahead of a deadline last Thursday. The money was raised by fans, players and directors as part of a ‘Save Our Seasiders’ campaign.
Judge Nicholas Briggs rejected the initial HMRC petition to wind up the club upon hearing evidence. It’s believed the money was transferred on Thursday morning, following an announcement from Prestatyn chairman Chris Tipping that the club had reached its target.
Fundraising efforts included a sponsored walk from Flint to Prestatyn, which went ahead on Saturday ahead of the Seasiders’ 2-0 win over Flint Town United, which keeps the club six points clear at the top of the Huws Gray Alliance.
