'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A sponsor's disappointment and offer to owners

The group director behind Blackburn's biggest sponsor has voiced his concerns over the current situation at the club and the lack of a reply from an email he sent over six weeks ago.

Wayne Wild is the man behind the WEC Group's sponsorship of the Darwen End and several corporate hotspots around Ewood Park and after a lifetime he is pleading with the owners to change their stance and communicate with fans.

Wayne himself has even offered to be the go between for fans and the owners as the club looks set for some dark days.

Wayne told BBC Radio Lancashire - 'I sent them a letter direct six weeks go offering my services as a direct link. 'There's been a gulf growing over the last few weeks and it's getting worse. Unfortunately I've had no reply.'

'That's obviously quite disappointing for someone who has invested heavily in the club.

'And really I'm giving them the opportunity that I will be that link. I'm now just waiting for a reply.'

'I feel there is nobody for me to contact from a business point of view or from a fan's perspective.

'I'd like some answers from the owners as to what they are doing to rectify that. This isn't a campaign to complain. It's a case really of let's open up some communication links.

'Let's get this opened up before the gulf between the fans and the owners grow too far that it will be difficult to get it back together again.'

It's sad to see a sponsor being treat this way but surely he has the potential to hit them where it hurts if the need arises?
