However, the Coca-Cola League Two outfit have been given just two weeks to sort out the crisis or face a winding-up order.

The 132-year-old club, the oldest in Wales, owe around £900,000 (€1.2m) in unpaid tax, while owner Alex Hamilton has refused to accept a takeover bid fronted by former chairman Mark Guterman.
