Star date: 22nd October 2012

SALFORD REDS FANS PETITION CLUB TO DEMAND PUBLIC MEETING AND ANSWERS

Fans of Salford Reds have launched an online `Save Our Salford' petition demanding that "those whom currently own and manage the Salford City Reds RLFC…urgently arrange and hold a public meeting to discuss and answer questions that may be proposed by your supporters, customers and potential investors".

This follows the winding up petition launched by management consultants, Steuer Gregsson, last week and speculation over the club's financial future...

Following the winding up petition (see here) launched by management consultants, Steuer Gregsson, ironically brought in to help secure Salford Red's future, fans who are at the end of their supporting tether, have launched an online petition demanding answers from the club's directors.

The petition reads…

"We, the Undersigned, demand those whom currently Own and Manage The Salford City Reds RLFC to urgently arrange and hold a public meeting to discuss and answer questions that may be proposed by your supporters, customers and potential investors.

The Supporters of this once Great club have no option find the lack of transparency from Salford City Reds Rugby League Football Club to be unsatisfactory especially as in the Most recent MatchDay Programme the Chairman of our club John Wilkinson talked about improving communication with the supporters. The fans of this Rugby League football club have as always remained Loyal and very supportive ,not only in the last year or so but during times when the club needed us the most. I believe the Supporters of our club should always be at the forefront of the clubs minds when decisions are made.

This unsatisfactory position of the Club being served a Winding Up Petition has cemented the viewpoint that We the Heart and Soul of Our Club deserve Answers from those in a position to be honest and open .
As always the Salford faithful supports the long term ambition of the Chairman and the board but we respectfully request our voices are heard.

We believe this can only be achieved by Holding a Supporters Meeting with representatives from Salford City Reds to discuss our present situation and our future sustainability.

It is our hope that the Club will respect this request and that the supporters embrace any forthcoming changes and see them as a positive step forward.

We would finally like to wish the Phil Veivers, his coaching staff and all the players The Best of Luck for the impending Pre season and urge the fans to get behind the playing squad as they have done every season."

WILLOWGATE - This saga continues to show the imcompetence of Scary Spicer (£200k per year plus expenses) , our absent Mayor'Nero' Stewart, our, Deputy mayor Biffo (Big Ignorant Fick oath) Lancaster, the 12 assistant Mayors like 'Do Nothing' Dennet , Lisa "thick as' Stone and Space head Coen. Whilst Spicer hides away this week in her Grecian Villa (2nd home bought with your money) Salford continues to go down the tubes. This council has shades of Liverpool when it became a doomed to fail council in the 1970 and 80s. Is at least one of the assistants going to respond to the Star or are they in hiding - perhaps they are all with Scary in her Grecian villa? !

ONly the board of directors are to be blamed and are responsible for such actions that have lead to the demise of the club in recent years. The club have FAILED to hold transparent communication with its main stakeholders, that being the supporters who plough 1000's in each year. 'Mr Salford' needs to be honest with the fans and salford public.

The Willows was ours! How much would it have cost to upgrade it? It had character, it was in Salford. What assets do the club now have? Some very bad business decisions have been made.

If the people of Salford can save the city itself from boundary changes, why not save Salford City Reds. The new stadium was needed, the sport and the club must move with the times.

What kind of idiot would want to sit in an old 19th century stadium? The Willows was a dump! When you talk about public funds this is an oppotunity for a community to utilise a state of the art facility - or would you rather public funds are dished out to the idle so that they can drink and smoke themselves into oblivion! Wake up Salford tracksuits aren't only a fashion item.

They couldn't get full gates at the Willows so how the hell Salford Reds and the city Council expected to get better at the new stadium is beyond me. I read a comment from Mr Wilkinson last week where he states that it is only a SMALL amount.They owe £150.000 to the C/E for paye. that is just one debt,god knows how much they owe to others,and to me that is not a small amount.They owe over £1M to the residents of Salford.If they do go under, (which I hope they don't for the supporters and the city) Then Mr Mayor/Merry/LANCASTER and Ms Spicer have a few questions to answer regarding the loans this city council have given to the club over this last few years. Because at the end of the day this is OUR money they have used and by the looks of it not very wisely. Why have the city gone into debt of over £22M to build the new stadium. I now hear that Peel were thinking of taking over the club,but they have now withdrawn. So where will that leave us with this BIG debt??????
