Southend United’s financial problems continue as another winding-up petition by HM Revenue and Customs has been issued.

The Shrimpers are no strangers to winding-up petitions and most recently had one issued in July after a further two petitions were issued at the start of the year.

It had also been reported by the BBC that back in April players and staff were paid their wages a number of days late.

Club chairman Ron Martin took over the club in 1998 and appears to be the main source of funding for the club after he dealt with numerous debts including a 2009 tax bill which almost saw the club go into administration.

The club currently sit 22nd in League One with just one point from their first eight games.

The new petition is due to be heard at the Royal Courts of Justice on 16 October.

Although fans have lived through numerous winding-up orders that have come to nothing, many of them are still worried about the clubs financial state:
