Closure Threat Averted

In a case dating back to the Summer and the transfer of Scott Guyett from Yeovil Town to AFC Bournemouth, the club faced a winding up order in the High Court in London over a febt of just under £40,000.

Following the hearing, which was adjourned, Paul Baker is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "Adam (Murry) brokered a deal with Magic Solutions and the deal was that we would pay, in full, by the end of February. We part agreed their claim and paid some of it. We tried to get it resolved before we had to go to court. But the goalposts have been moved slightly, which has not helped. I paid some of it, personally, yesterday and now want to get the rest of it resolved. There was a figure agreed of £42,000 and some of that has now been paid. But even though we have paid a figure, it doesn't equate to what they are asking for. There has been a movement upwards of £3,000, which is why we can't agree. I haven't got an axe to grind with anybody. I just want to get it all done and dusted".
