Grays Athletic set to be wound up in High Court today

GRAYS ATHLETIC face a winding up petition in the High Court today.

Their case is set for 10.30 this morning at Court 58 in the Thomas More building in Chancery Lane, London before Mr Registrar Simmonds.

Back in July, the club were given 98 days to pay an outstanding tax bill.

If Grays fail to pay the sum, they could be wound up and its affairs handed to receivers.

After the brief hearing last time, Grays Chief Executive, Andy Swallow told fans via the club’s website that former club owners Mickey and Judith Woodward had now handed their shares to him.

Mr Swallow said: “Mickey Woodward has been to court today and the Winding-Up Order has been set aside for 98 days whilst both parties agree the amounts etc.

“I am now a director of Grays Athletic and both Mickey & Judith Woodward have handed their shares to me .”

At that time, several directors terminated their appointments, Val Pepperell came on board as secretary and many are confident that the matter, seen as remnant of the past will be sorted today.
