PRESTATYN Town have been issued with a winding up order due to a dispute with a clothing manufacturer.

The news was officially made public on Wednesday, January 9, with Stockport-based company Aficionado Distribution Limited listed as the plaintive in the case.

The Journal understands that is grievance is down to an outstanding debt involving a significant amount of new kit issued to the club late last year, and the petition was presented to the High Court on November 30.

Club representatives, who are believed to be meeting at the ground this evening (Wednesday) to discuss the matter, will look to resolve the matter at a specially arranged hearing at the Manchester District Registry on Monday, January 21.

This is the latest in a series of issues relating to off-the-field matters at the Huws Gray Alliance side in recent years, with a huge community fundraising push saving the club from extinction at the hands of a £53,000 HMRC tax bill in November 2016.

Since that period, Town’s ownership has changed hands, with Dave Farrall, Neal Colakoglu and Salih Colakoglu purchasing the club from Chris Tipping, who remains part of the board in an advisory role.

Things have been looking up for Neil Gibson’s side of late, with the one-time basement dwellers currently on a four-match unbeaten run and their most recent outing saw them defeat runaway league leaders Airbus Broughton on their travels.
