Bohs in new cash appeal to supporters

BOHEMIANS last night made an appeal to their wider fan base as they admitted they are well short of their overall target needed tokeep the club alive.
A Revenue bill of €105,000 looms large this week for the 2009 League of Ireland champions, who last week informed their members they needed to find €300,000 before the end of the month to pay the outstanding wages and taxes needed to secure a license for 2011. They need a further €400,000 to keep the club running over the winter to be ready for the next campaign.
Club officials revealed they have raised more than €40,000 since going public last week and said they may look at securing a settlement with Revenue Commisioners if they come up short of the total.
Despite interest in Paddy Madden and Paul Keegan, the club confirmed that neither player has secured a move that would ease the club’s cash crisis.
