Winding-up order brought against Bangor Football Club

By John Mulgrew

An engineering firm has brought a winding-up order against the holding firm of Bangor FC.

Lisburn-based Tal Civil Engineering is taking the action against Bangor Football and Athletic Club Ltd, based at Clandeboye Road. A case will be heard at The Royal Courts of Justice in Belfast on April 7.

Last month, a Co Antrim steel firm that is the main sponsor of Portadown Football Club, MET Steel Group, was placed in administration with the loss of 40 jobs.

Grant Thornton has now been appointed to deal with the business, which is based in Mallusk.

The administration includes both MET Steel Group Limited and MET Steel Limited.

A spokesman for Grant Thornton said: "Gareth Latimer and Stephen Tennant of Grant Thornton have been appointed as joint administrators."
