Players consider legal action over unpaid wages

Bohemian Rugby Club has denied that it has been served a winding up order but has confirmed that two of its players are considering action.  

A statement on the Airtricity League Premier Division side's website confirmed that Steven Gray and Brian Shelley were considering legal action with some players having not been paid for nearly two months.

The statement read:  "Bohemian FC wishes to clarify that it is not the subject of an order of the High Court winding up the club.

"Media reports have today (14th January) disclosed the identity of the parties in a possible action against Bohemian FC.  The club can similarly confirm that the parties concerned are Mr Steven Gray and Mr Brian Shelley.

"We can also confirm that we are in a position to vehemently defend any potential action to place the club into liquidation.  Both the PFAI and the parties' legal representative have been informed of this."
