Leigh Pomlett Asks For Fans' Money Making Ideas

Walsall chairman Leigh Pomlett has used his latest video update to ask supporters to come up with suggestions of steps the club could take to generate some much-needed finances during the ongoing coronavirus lock-down.
Following on from a recent question and answer session, Pomlett released another of his weekly video updates and calling upon the Saddlers faithful to offer ideas on how to boost their teams' revenue during these uncertain financial times.

The club has already taken action to extend the Early Bird Season Ticket window, whilst the Supporters’ Trust recently launched a 50/50 draw in order to generate extra cash as the club continues to navigate the Covid-19 crisis.

Speaking via the club's official Twitter account, Leigh said; "The fact is, this is a crisis – be under no illusions, this is a crisis for the whole football word and Walsall Football Club is not immune to that.

"We have to take a lot of action to make that we come out of this fit and well. Any ideas in terms of cash generation that you have – I do not have all the answers and I’m more than willing to listen to supporters that have ideas about how we help the club through this crisis.

"It will last for some weeks and months to come yet. Be assured that we’re looking after the club as you would expect us to, extremely well. But it is really tough so any ideas that people have will be well received."

Pomlett went on to ask for patience as he, the EFL, and the rest of the chairmen who represent the clubs in League Two continue to consider their options as to if, how, and when the 2019/20 campaign will get back underway.

The chairman, who has sought to keep supporters abreast of the latest news and information, admitted the situation is unclear but fans may find information more forthcoming over the next few weeks as the powers that be continue to work towards a solution.

Leigh continued; "People are asking me what supporters can do to help and they already have, to be honest, with the season tickets. The answer really, is to try and be a bit patient.

"I am very sensitive of the fact that people have bought season tickets and this season hasn’t ended and people have bought season for a season where we’re not sure when it’s going to start – I am very sensitive to that.

"All I ask for at this stage is some patience – I think things will be clearer in the next week or two to how we drive the playing agenda forward.

"Whether that’s a view on when we’re going to play in front of crowds again or whether we’re going to be playing behind closed doors.

"Try and show some patience if you can with the current situation, particularly as it relates to how the season finishes and the next one begins."
