Featherstone Rovers have confirmed that Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) sent them a winding up petition on October 28 this year.
A statement from the club reads:
“Featherstone Rovers can confirm it received a winding up petition from HMRC on 28th October 2014.
“Following a number of conversations between the club and HMRC a plan was agreed to pay this in four instalments, two of which have already been paid.
“The current balance outstanding is £11,100 and given the fact that details of the petition have been published the club is planning to bring forward the final two payments to clear the balance this week.
“It is disappointing that the HMRC have chosen to advertise when a plan to clear the arrears had been agreed and the club had already made the payments as promised.”
