Wrexham Football Club has received a ‘substantial amount’ towards paying its HMRC bill after a loan offer by Dr John Marek.
The club is also exploring an initiative to raise further funds from supporters as it fights off a winding up order with a debt of nearly £200,000 owed to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.
Details of the scheme are to be released in due course. The statement added: "HMRC have made it very clear that the only way they will withdraw the petition is if FULL payment is made, they will not accept part payments.
"Typical of the problems facing the club is that our bank account will probably be frozen today, making it very difficult to operate. Additional PAYE/NI monies will be due in the next few days, as well as wages at the end of April and VAT in May.
"We are in constant dialogue with Richard Owen and Rob Parry of the WST in trying to find a short and a long term solution for the future of the club.
"We are also in touch with the two parties who have expressed an interest in buying the club."
