Planned Fan Protest
We are aware of the protest being planned for the upcoming televised WBA game and are not at all surprised at this move to enable and express supporters’ current views on the state of our club.
We also fully understand that the BWFC supporters’ growing concerns about the very future of the club are now turning into anger in light of the recent online and social media articles, posts and exchanges over recent days.
As people will appreciate, we have attempted to engage Mr Anderson in meaningful dialogue during the whole period of his ownership of BWFC. However, as recently documented in his refusal to meet with us or consider our Memorandum of Understanding proposal, it has become crystal clear that Mr Anderson continues to be unwilling to engage in such a dialogue.
It is sad that relationships between the owner and large numbers of concerned BWFC supporters have deteriorated to such a level that organised protests are now on the agenda. However, the current stance of the owner, allied to his reluctance to engage with the lifeblood of BWFC, the supporters, has now, somewhat inevitably, moved matters to this next phase.
Whilst feelings are now running high, all we would ask is that any supporters intending to become involved in the protest use the opportunity to fully express their concerns in a loud and clear manner, whilst maintaining the dignity, respect and standing of BWFC that has been built up over all our lifetimes.
In the meantime, the BWFCST will continue with our attempts to engage with the owner, whilst at all times having the long term sustainability of the club and it’s remaining assets as the main focus.
