- Plymouth Albion has reassured its fans after 'an error' saw the club hauled before the High Court to face a winding up order from the taxman.
The rugby club was issued the order, which forces an insolvent company into compulsory liquidation - but Albion has said that this "was an error" and the order has now been "dismissed".
Albion's managing director, Max Venables, told Plymouth Live that the club had not received any correspondence about the court hearing, learning of it through a supplier who had been alerted to the listing - meaning that no representative for the club was present.
Mr Venables said that he immediately phoned the court and was told that the case against Plymouth Albion was "dismissed immediately" and was a mistake.
He confirmed that the club is "business as usual" and the team are looking forward to Saturday's game against Cambridge.
Mr Venables said: "The first we heard of it was yesterday when we were alerted by a supplier.
"All we know is that it was an error and it was dismissed immediately.
"We are looking into it in more detail and apologise if it caused anyone stress or worry. It is business as usual and we're looking forward to this weekend against Cambridge."
Mr Venables said that ticket sales have been up by 20 per cent this season and "it really helps the lads" to see their fans getting behind them and turning up to show their support.
A HMRC spokesperson said it was not able to comment "on identifiable individuals or businesses".
I think there is more too this than meets the eye and i think there will be another one soon.
