Rothes working to stave off threat of closure

Rothes claim they are working hard to pay an outstanding tax bill to HM Revenue and Customs.

The Mackessack Park club have reportedly been served a winding-up order over unpaid tax that could be as much as £30,000.

A club statement read: "We wish to confirm that 'rumours' circulating about our calling from HMRC have truth in them.

"We are in communication with the HMRC and with the support from the committee, sponsors, and our loyal fans we will able clear this financial hurdle.

"Once we are clear on the financial request from HMRC we will be calling a public meeting so that we can move forward with the support of everyone who wants to see Rothes FC survive."
