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.
