Nuneaton make ‘big move forward’ to club’s survival

The future of Nuneaton Borough is looking brighter after it was announced that they have made ‘big move forward’ to the club’s survival.

Two weeks ago, they had a meeting at Liberty Way with potential investors as they look to save the National League North side.

The Warwickshire side had a £31,000 HMRC bill to pay by the 25th of March along with former players and staff wages still needing to be paid.

Now the chairman and first team manager, Jimmy Ginnelly, is hoping some bills should be paid off this week.

He said, as quoted by CoventryLive: “We are hoping to pay the HMRC bill this week.

“This will stop the winding up order. That is a big step forward.

“We are also working with our other football creditors.”

“We are hoping this will see us until the end of the season and they we can put our business plans into place.

“I want to stress I was always confident we could do this, for a while it was a case that people didn’t want to get involved with the club, now they do, they have got on board and got behind me and the club.

“This is the most positive I have felt since I came in.

“There is a feel good factor around the place now that we haven’t had in a long time.”

The club recently held a Legends match which saw £3,500 raised on the day as well as on a JustGiving page to help Nuneaton in it’s time of need.
