Salford Reds survive court to play another day
By Nigel Roberts
Salford Reds were given a stay of execution at court in Manchester.
The beleagured club came in front of District Judge Redmond to hear the case of the winding up petition against them.
The club's case was heard at 10am at the Manchester District Registry Court.
Management consultants Steuer Grigsson brought the action against Salford Reds on 4th September 2012 after the club failed to pay a £15,000 bill. That matter in particular has been settled.
All Reds staff were due to be paid on Thursday 26th October but despite not being paid on schedule have been guaranteed payment by the end of the month.
HMRC, who are owed £150,000 in unpaid PAYE, did not send any representation to the case.
Aussie full-back Luke Patten has been added as a creditor to the action for non-payment of salary.
The case has been adjourned to the 7th January 2013.
