Southend United: Winding-up petition against League One club dismissed

Southend
Southend United are currently three points off the League One play-off places

A winding-up petition brought against Southend United has been dismissed after the League One club paid the debt owed to HM Revenue & Customs.

Tax officials had made the application, but the court in London on Monday heard the money had been paid.

The total amount owed to HMRC has not been revealed.

Phil Brown's Shrimpers side are currently seventh in the League One table, and their next game is a trip to Fleetwood on Saturday.
