The 133-year-old Keighley Cougars ‘Pride of Keighley’ RLFC club faced a winding up petition from HMRC. Attempts by the club and the Rugby League to secure funding and a repayment agreement with the Crown both failed: the remaining options were winding up or administration. Appointed Joint Administrators we immediately secured a sale of the business and assets to a consortium of local businessmen who are fans of the club. As well as saving the club, the deal secured the future of the playing squad and staff at the ground.
