Troubled Nuneaton Borough yesterday revealed that there has been a meeting at Liberty Way with potential investors for the club 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.
They are looking at ‘high-net-worth individual, a share issue for investors and potentially a bond issue.’
Acting chairman Jimmy Ginnelly said: “It’s been well documented that the football club is very close to going out of business. A winding up order has been issued by HMRC and there are other creditors who have sent debt collection agency to our door.
“We’re fighting fires on a daily basis but, despite this, the people present have shown a real desire and commitment to tackle the serious problems we are facing and save the Boro’. It was a positive meeting and we are now putting a plan together but I hope it will take us out of the worrying situation we’re in.
“It will not be easy, but we’re going to give it a go. These discussions are ongoing and a further statement will be issued in due course.”
It comes just two weeks since supporters raised thousands on a JustGiving page they have recently set up to help save the club from going bust.
And four weeks ago, former footballer Nick Hawkins – who only took over at rock bottom National League North side on the 2nd of November – revealed ‘he has taken the club as far as he could’ with many fans saying his decision was the final nail in the coffin.
