London Welsh 'confident' after being given more time to pay debts

Old Deer Park
London Welsh returned to Old Deer Park in 2015, having been promoted to the Premiership in 2012 and 2014

London Welsh have been given more time to pay outstanding debts.

The Championship club announced in a statement on Monday that an insolvency court had granted an adjournment "for a number of weeks".

The statement added: "The club remains confident that it will be able to satisfy such outstanding amounts."

In September, the Exiles avoided liquidation after paying their debts and ensuring a winding-up petition was dismissed by the High Court.

It followed a takeover being agreed by a United States-based investment group.
