Perhaps the first step towards administration and finally getting rid of the inept management and current board!

No, a winding up order will skip the administration and will mean that Lewes FC would have to reform and start again in the county league. .

Would that be so bad though? After all we have county league attendance now?!

Martin Elliot et al would rather see a winding up than the club going into administration as the directors are less likely to get pursued personally for any of the debts and it won't affect their directorships of other companies.
That said, Elliot did apparently put his hand in his pocket to pay off Portakabin so he must think he can get some cash for the club rather than just bin it.

I am wondering what the football club owes money to Portakabin for? Mobile Classrooms?? Portable toilets? Seeems like a lot of money . Wonder why he didn't put his hand in his pocket before the court date. All seems very messy and poorly managed.

Doesn't everything connected with Elliot seem a bit 'messy and poorly managed'? Just as well he wasn't able to go ahead with his development by the station. What a half-arsed disaster that would have been.
