Truro City Avoid Winding Up Order

Truro City look like avoiding a winding up order.
The football club was due in the High Court this morning because of a tax debt.
Now bosses say the bill has been paid in full and it is 'back to business as usual'.
We are hearing the order will be lifted once the money has cleared.
A statement from Chairman Kevin Heaney has been posted on the Truro Independent Supporters Association's website:
"I have just left the High Court in London and can confirm that the outstanding six-figure sum has been paid in full to HM Revenue and Customs. So from now on it is business as usual, with team strengthening and our continued commitment to the Stadium for Cornwall project. We will now be seeking to have the League's transfer embargo lifted just as soon as possible so that we can start strengthening our squad again.
"We are immensely grateful to everyone who has stuck by the club and helped in all sorts of ways over the last few extremely difficult months. I will be at Bromley for our next match, this Saturday, and I very much look forward to seeing as many as possible of our fantastic away supporters there - followed, of course, by our next home match a week later against Staines Town. Now it's time for a fresh start - onwards and upwards, as they say."
