Bolton Wanderers win reprieve in tax debt winding-up fight

Struggling Bolton have won a reprieve in their fight for survival after tax officials asked for the Championship club to be wound up.

Lawyers representing Bolton told a specialist judge at the High Court on Monday that efforts were being made to raise money. Registrar Clive Jones said more evidence would be analysed at another hearing next month.

On January 18, Registrar Michael Briggs heard that Bolton owed HM Revenue and Customs £2.2million.

A Bolton spokesman indicated after that hearing that bosses were aiming to find a buyer or raise money from asset sales.

On Friday, Bolton bosses said the club’s training ground had been sold to Wigan.

Supporters saw Bolton climb from the foot of the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

Striker Zach Clough scored to earn Bolton a 1-1 home draw against QPR and leave them one place off the bottom of the table.
