'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wednesdayite Get Club Assurances

Sheffield Wednesday Supporters Society Wednesdayite have been 'assured' by the club that the current financial situation with HMRC is 'under control'.

The group issued a statement on their official website yesterday following a meeting with Wednesday chief executive Nick Parker.

It read: 'After the shock and distress of hearing the news of HMRC's winding up order, we immediately contacted SWFC and arranged a meeting with CEO Nick Parker this afternoon. We were assured that the situation with HMRC is under control and the club and the bank are working together to sort the problem in time to avoid any winding up order.

'The action is a consequence of the hard line being taken by HMRC who have acted very quickly and with far less flexibility than was expected.

'So, the club tells us that it is dealing with this immediate matter. Let us see this happen.

'The issue we all need to be working hardest on is to find a solution to the poor financial state of the club which has led to this situation arising. Investment in the club and significant changes in the board room are needed if any solution to the underlying probems is to be forthcoming.'

All indications point towards a trouble-free conclusion for the Owls with regards to paying the tax bill of 550,000, so let's hope it's concluded sooner rather than later.
