Truro City FC chairman Kevin Heaney has confirmed today (Saturday) that the club has been served a fresh winding up petition by HM Revenue and Customs.
The club avoided a winding up order in January when it paid a six figure sum hours before a High Court hearing.
A statement by Truro City's chairman, said: "Truro City can confirm that HM Revenue and Customs have served a fresh winding-up petition for £51,000 on Truro City FC, in relation to tax issues.
"We can confirm that at the last hearing we paid 100 per cent of what we were asked to pay at that point.
"HMRC indicated that there would be some further moneys to pay and we said we would clear these moneys in April, by agreement, but HMRC rejected this and subsequently told us they wanted the £51,000 sum to be paid immediately.
"We reiterated our wish to delay payment until April, which was again rejected, and the winding-up order has now been issued, for hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice on April 30. The club can confirm that the £51,000 will be paid in full by that date."
