King's Lynn's High Court winding up petition was dismissed this afternoon.

Court officials confirmed the case against King's Lynn Football Club (1994) Limited had officially been dealt with in court 52 at Companies Court of the High Court.

Lynn's affairs are now in the hands of the Official Receiver who will be charged with trying to sell any saleable assets. Registrar Simmonds dismissed the application after counsel for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Catherine Addy, told the court that a letter had been received from club directors Tim Coates and Michael Chinn's solicitors confirming that they are withdrawing their application.

Registrar Simmonds ordered both men to pay HMRC's legal costs of �250, payable within 14 days. No-one from Lynn's board was present at the High Court.
