THE High Court yesterday dismissed a winding-up order against Brighton after the Second Division club paid pounds 398,000 to the Inland Revenue for the non-payment of PAYE. About pounds 300,000 is still owed, but Ray Bloom, a Brighton director, said he was confident it would be settled in due course. Yesterday's payment was helped by the pounds 350,000 Brighton received from Leeds on Tuesday for their goalkeeper Mark Beeney.
STAFFORD RANGERS, the GM Vauxhall Conference club, have named Brendan Phillips as their new manager. Phillips, in charge at Bedworth United of the Beazer Homes League for the past three years, replaces Dennis Booth, who left three weeks ago to become assistant manager at Bristol Rovers.
