Oldham fight off winding-up petition


Oldham have fought off a winding-up petition by paying an outstanding tax debt of just over £6,000.

News of a petition for that amount from HMRC, to be heard in the High Court on April 22, broke last Thursday when the club assured fans that its immediate future was secure.

Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton has since revealed that the club’s tax liabilities are now up to date, the £6,000-plus debt having been paid off last Friday.

He added: “We take our responsibilities seriously. Like lots of other people in rugby league we are working hard to keep our heads above water and to make progress in very difficult times.”

The club has moved its administrative and office base from Lansdowne Road, Chadderton, where it has been for several years, to an office in the Oasis Academy on Hollins Road where both Oldham RL teams already train two nights a week on a regular basis.
