WINDING-UP moves brought by the taxman against Wakefield Trinity Rugby League Football Club were formally dismissed at London’s High Court today, Wednesday.

Registrar Nicholls dismissed the petition on the request of Matt Smith, counsel for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.

Mr Smith told him that the company had gone into administration following a court order made last Friday.

Had the club been compulsorily wound up, it would have effectively handed over the club’s affairs to an Official Receiver.

His job would then be to do his best to ensure that debts are paid off by selling any assets available and then bringing business to a close.
