Welling United granted extra time to find funds


Blue Square Bet South side Welling United Football Club has been given an additional 14 days to pay nearly £60,000 to HM Revenue and Customs.

Welling will now appear again at the High Court on the 15th December and have appealed to fans and potential investors to help raise the required funds to avoid being wound up.

A statement on the club’s official site read:  “We at the club are pleased to inform supporters that the club has been given a further 14 days to settle the total debt due to HMRC.

“We must now all understand that this stands as a final opportunity for the club to survive.  We have a petition debt to clear of £59,411.75. The initial petition debt stood at £97,880.12, other than that we have to be mindful that further sums totalling £20,000 PAYE/VAT, sums will be payable to HMRC in due course.

“In the last 24 hours there has been a positive move by potential fresh investors, although with time being so short we would have to move very fast for things to fall into place on this front.   We should therefore also explore whether we as a club, and fans, can raise the monies required and if so, on what basis.”
