Wycombe Wanderers Trust, who had warned the previous week that the Club could go into administration unless £250,000 was raised as a matter of urgency, responded promptly to the news by issuing a statement that read,
"The Club are working with the HRMC to settle this amount and matters are progressing towards an amicable and workable end. As stated previously, the Club had great difficulty releasing funds held within the assets owned by Wycombe Wanderers Trust via Frank Adams Legacy Limited, but these are now being unwound and will allow the club to operate with ample working capital."
