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."
