PLATINUM SPORTS MANAGEMENT (PSM) may be set to go into administration.

A petition to wind up the company, closely associated with Harlow Town Football Club, has peen presented at the High Court.

It appears that the main creditor is the HMRC (the taxman).

Only this summer, PSM director Tommy Cunningham told a newspaper that they had laid out £350,000 for the new 3G pitches.

A spokesperson for Harlow Town Football Club told YH that they had spoken to a representative from PSM, who were confident of “quashing the petition”.

The petition states: “A Petition to wind up the above-named Company of 29 Welbeck Street, London, W1M 8DA, presented on 20 September 2013 by the Commissioners for HM Revenue and Customs, of Bush House, Strand, London, WC2B 4RD, claiming to be Creditors of the Company, will be heard at the Royal Courts of Justice, 7 Rolls Buildings, Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1NL, on 4 November 2013, at 1030 hours (or as soon thereafter as the Petition can be heard).

Any persons intending to appear on the hearing of the Petition (whether to support or oppose it) must give notice of intention to do so to the Petitioners or to their Solicitor in accordance with Rule 4.16 by 1600 hours on 1 November 2013.

The Petitioners` Solicitor is the Solicitor to, HM Revenue and Customs, Solicitor`s Office, South West Wing, Bush House, Strand, London, WC2B 4RD, telephone 020 7438 6770. (Ref SLR1685374/G.)

YH had contacted Harlow Town to see if this would affect the club in any way but they had not replied at the time of publication.
