Bank Step In To Save Wednesday

Bank Step In To Save Wednesday

Wednesday look to have survived the threat of administration today with their bank, the Co-operative Bank, understood to be stepping in to help them with their unpaid tax bill.

Earlier today the club were dealt with the news that they could be entered into administration within the next 24 hours if they failed to pay the bill, understood to be around £1.1 million.

It was depending on their creditors, the Co-op Bank, bailing them out yet again.

And following discussions today, it appears that the Co-op have agreed to help Wednesday avoid administration - and a ten point league penalty - and help pay their growing tax bill.

The club were at the High Court today to deal with their unpaid tax bill to the HMRC, which was delayed 28 days ago to allow the Owls further time to pay up.

And although the imminent administration threat seems to have gone for now, the club is still crying out for investment as the poor financial situation at Hillsborough appears to continue to grow.

The club, and the Co-op Bank, have yet to make a statement on today's news but one is expected within 24 hours.

amazing, the complete disgrace that run our club have got away with it again if this is true. until the next time anyway. what a business plan they have, brown nose the bank until they get their own way. part of me wishes the bank would have told them to **** right off. the cancer of our club remains.....SACK THE BOARD!!!

is it true that the bank has come to help us out again,if it`s true I bet part of the deal was that the board got on their bikes and not to show their faces at the weekend cause I dont think they would be made welcome

Still worried despite this news! What happens the next time we owe money and cannot pay? Investment seems to be the only way out of our dire mess. Also where has the lee grant money gone? Didn't we sell granty to help pay off the taxman???

Maybe the bank have agreed to extend their help further knowing investment + takeover is imminent, I understand they are involved in the various discussions with interested parties, maybe I'm just being overly optimistic though!!!

from what i understand about it, the co-op had too help out, if we go into administration, they would lose out on everything we owe them. be nice to get some confirmation that this is true then focus goes back on football.

10am wed morning and no mention on official site, about the goings on over the past 24 hours, think it says everything about the people who run our club.

Says on sky sports website that the money has been paid, they have arranged a 'short term' solution. no doubt more of the same the next time the tax man comes knocking. the board just need to pack up and **** off.
