Owls Await High Court Verdict

Owls Await High Court Verdict

Wednesday are less than an hour away from hearing if the club will be granted an extra two weeks to complete a takeover deal or face administration, or worse.

The club are in the High Court today faced with a winding up order by HMRC over an unpaid tax bill of £600,000.

Wednesday's case is set to be heard in less than an hour, and the judge is set to give an imminent reply to the thousands of Wednesdayites following the news online.

The club are set to ask for a two week adjournment of the case so that they can complete a takeover deal, with four or five parties said to be in discussions.

Wednesday had hoped to have completed a deal by 5pm yesterday so they could pay off their tax bill today and avoid administration or even worse, liquidation.

But, after failing to bring a deal to a conclusion, and by not going into administration, the club instead decided to take the high-risk method of asking for an adjournment.

If the plea fails, Wednesday face liquidation unless the major creditors, the Co-op Bank, immediately force the Owls into admnistration.

We're likely to find out within the next hour, so keep checking Vital for all the latest updates.
