The Trust Offers Support for Planned Fan Protest

The Walsall Football Supporters' Trust have released a statement confirming their support for a planned protest ahead of the Saddlers' League One clash with Oxford United, which takes place at Banks's Stadium on Saturday, 13th January.
The Walsall Football Supporters' Trust have released a statement confirming their support for a planned fan protest which is due to take place ahead of the Saddlers' League One clash with Oxford United, which will be played at Banks's Stadium on Saturday, 13th January.

The statement, published via their official Facebook page, confirms; Over the last few weeks, it has become obvious that more and more fans have become disillusioned with the way they perceive the club is being run.

This is not just a matter of results on the pitch and an anti-Jon Whitney movement, although he, himself, can be seen to be a symptom of the problem, but more about the perception that the club has abandoned its stated ambitions to become, eventually, an established Championship club, with the so-called DNA of the team abandoned.

We have ourselves, via the Trust Column in the local press, made suggestions to the club several times to take action to try to restore the faith of the supporters, to no avail.

An independent group of supporters has organised a protest at the next home game against Oxford on the 13th, January, where supporters are encouraged to stand in front of the main entrance and not enter the ground.

Season ticket holders, who have already paid in advance, are being asked to go into the game, but not spend a penny on food drink. Then, upon the 80th minute, whatever the score be in the game or however good or bad we are playing, they will get up and leave the game and join the fans outside the ground. There will also be a bucket collection for those participating to donate their entry fees to charity.

The Walsall Supporters’ Football Trust generally agree with the sentiments expressed by the fellow fans organising the protest. We encourage all fans to join this peaceful protest to show that now is time for the club to affirm the ambition that we all want.
