The countdown began when a winding up petition by the Inland Revenue was adjourned today (Wednesday) after it was superseded by a last-minute administration petition from Wrexham’s directors.
The administration petition will be heard on 3 December at the High Court in Manchester, opening up a two-week window of opportunity for a deal.
David Acland and Steven Williams, the proposed joint administrators, stressed that every effort would continue to complete a financial rescue package without entering into administration, which comes with a 10-point penalty.
‘It is our hope that sufficient investment can be secured in order for a rescue plan to be formulated to ensure the long-term survival and future success of this famous Club,’ said Acland.
Wrexham, which is 132 years old and owes around £900,000 to the taxman, warned that administration was ‘not a solution’ to the club’s problems but rather ‘a mechanism through which a solution can be sought’.
