YCST React to Plight of York Wasps RLFC

York City Supporters' Trust have expressed their disappointment about the news that York Wasps Rugby League Club has folded

The shock news comes just a matter of days after the Trust had helped secure the future of their football club with new Chairman John Batchelor taking over. The Trust will have ownership of 25.1% of the Club and at least two seats on the Board of Directors, thereby ensuring the fans and the community will play an integral role in the future of the Club.

A few weeks ago Trust representatives met with John Stabler and Russell Greenfield to discuss their proposed bid for the football club. The Trust subsequently decided to enter a working partnership with Batchelor, but at the time were grateful for the interest and support shown by Stabler and Greenfield for the Save City Campaign and professional sport in York.

Reacting to the news, Trust representative Robert Havercroft commented: "We are very disappointed to hear about the apparent demise of York Wasps. It is bad news for professional sport in York and comes at a time when the football club is being offered a fresh start. Through the Save City Campaign we managed to mobilise a huge amount of positive support from the fans and the community for the football club. A huge amount of hard work and organisation went into the campaign. Perhaps some Wasps fans can do the same for their Rugby League Club?"
