Magpies Winding Up Order an "Admin Error"

It's been revealed a winding up petition filed against Dorchester Town was an clerical error.
Concern was raised at the club after a supporter made Bosses aware the company was listed on the Ministry of Justice's website to face a hearing today (Monday 29th October 2012).
When Wessex FM contacted chairman Shaun Heard over the weekend he told us it must have been a mistake and spoke out to reassure fans.
In Court this morning a barrister for HMRC requested the petition be dismissed and Registrar Jones agreed to this. In a statement the Magpies say: ""Early on Monday morning it was established the winding up petition was presented by HMRC, despite the club being up to date with PAYE and VAT payments. As suspected it appears to have been an administrative error from HMRC."
