Macclesfield Town Football Club has been wound up in the High Court over debts totalling more than £500,000. 
Judge Sebastian Prentis made a winding-up order during a hearing in the Insolvency and Companies Court after being told £190,000 was owed in tax.In addition, a solicitor for John Askey said the National League club's ex-manager was owed £173,000, while a financial lender was owed the same sum.

The club's owner Amar Alkadhi had asked for a further eight-week adjournment.
