Leyton Orient: O's survive winding-up order

20 March 2017

A bid to wind up struggling football club Leyton Orient over an unpaid tax bill has been adjourned, after the debt was paid in full.

A judge today said he would consider their winding-up application on June 12, with Orient owner Francesco Becchetti given until then to pay off debts or sell the club.

But Orient owe money to four other creditors, including an event management firm who say they are owed about £18,000 by the club.

The judge, Registrar Nicholas Briggs, had analysed the case at a Bankruptcy and Companies Court hearing in London.

He heard a council was owed about £35,000 and a photographer about £6,000.

A lawyer representing Orient said that the club's chairman, Francesco Becchetti, would inject a further £1 million into the club soon.

Adam Michaelson, the trust's legal adviser, said he suspected the total debt was much bigger that the figures which emerged in court and added: "This club is still in mortal danger".

"In respect of a potential sale, we would call upon Mr Becchetti now to look to sell the club at the earliest possible opportunity and make good on the promise that he's made".

Becchetti did not attend the hearing at the High Court but Orient fans packed into the court room and others waited for news outside as the future of the club hung in the balance.

Around 30 Orient fans piled into the courtroom at the High Court on Monday, with many more outside - but there was no Italian presence anywhere to be seen.
