PRESTATYN Town have moved to reassure supporters after they received 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 for 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 will look to resolve the matter at a specially arranged hearing at the Manchester District Registry on Monday, January 21.

A club statement, said: The club has been made aware of reports regarding an outstanding issue between ourselves and a kit supplier from last season.

“The board would like to assure fans that the matter is fully under control and will be resolved in the coming days.

“The focus of the players and backroom staff remains solely on the upcoming fixtures in the league as we look to continue our outstanding form on the pitch.

“Thank you for your understanding and continued support.”

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 2017.

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 five-match unbeaten run.
