Dorchester Town football club have issued the following statement:
Late on Friday the Board of directors became aware of the Ministry of Justice website which showed Dorchester Town Football Club Ltd listed with a winding up petition for Monday morning.
The Board was shocked and surprised as the club is up-to-date with all creditors. The club has not received any notice of a winding up petition and confirmed there was no notice in the London gazette.
As it was late on Friday the relevant offices were closed but the Board can only assume it is an administrative error. The Board wishes to reassure supporters’ that the club is on a good financial footing particularly after our run in The FA Cup.
