... regarding the future of Workington AFC, including the possible option presented by Mr Brotherton, are ongoing.
As part of our Business Plan, we have nurtured the Reds Development Fund group, increased advertising and sponsorship and are currently in the process of undertaking the major new initiative of Reds in the Community, all in the hope of providing a stable business platform to support a successful Workington Football Club.
It is incumbent upon the Board we consider all options, including Mr Brotherton’s offer, with a view to consolidating the long term future of the club. However, it is important that we have time to bring our discussions with Allerdale to a conclusion and, when we are in a position to do so, will provide the shareholders with the options available to move the club forward.
We ask for your patience in this matter as we need to make the best decision for the long term future of the club. Whatever the outcome, the decision must be based on the sustainability of WAFC in the long term and cannot be rushed without all options being presented for consideration.
