HMRC Winding-Up Petitions Dropped Against Bolton

A winding-up petition against Bolton Wanderers has been dropped, after the club cleared an outstanding debt owed to HM Revenue & Customs.

The petition, which was heard at a Companies Court hearing on Wednesday, was dismissed after a lawyer representing HMRC confirmed the balance, which was undisclosed, had been settled.

Deputy Registrar Tina Kyriakides subsequently called an end to proceedings, allowing Bolton officials to continue with their business - less than two years after the club came close to liquidation, prior to a joint-takeover between Ken Anderson and Dean Holdsworth.

The balance is understood to have been settled in January, with the £6million transfer deadline day sale of Gary Madine not considered a factor.
