National League South club Gosport Borough says it is "business as usual" despite being served with a winding-up petition by HM Revenue & Customs.

Chairman Mark Hook assured supporters of the Hampshire club the tax bill for September has been "all paid off".

"It's frustrating, we were issued with a High Court writ 17 days after the bill," he told BBC Radio Solent.

"I can assure everyone that everything has been paid off and it will be thrown out at the hearing on 21 November."

Hook also confirmed the club is actively looking for a buyer, with a locally-based consortium understood to be interested in a takeover.

"If anyone wants to come and run the club and put the right investment in, I'm more than happy to step aside," he added.

Gosport are currently 12th in the table, eight points outside the top five.
