The board of directors understand supporters are planning a series of protests against Sainsbury’s during the coming weeks, over their attempts to pull out of the UWE Stadium deal.
At this moment in time, due to our ongoing legal action and with the High Court hearing a matter of weeks away, the club is not able to officially endorse or engage in any such protests, however we share the supporters' frustration with the position Sainsbury's is adopting and have no objection to supporters making their views known and taking any lawful steps to draw Sainsbury's actions to the attention of the wider public.
We do entirely understand how supporters feel given the on-going saga surrounding the UWE Stadium, especially when the project is pivotal to our ambitions of taking the club to the next level.
So we ask all supporters who are organising, or plan to take part in the protests to keep them both lawful and peaceful.
On behalf of the board we would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you all for your patience and co-operation in this matter, we are all very frustrated by the course of recent events.
Your support throughout this process is hugely appreciated, and we can assure you it does not go un-noticed.
This is a team effort and we are grateful to have you on our side during what is a testing time for all involved.
As a board we continue to work incredibly hard behind the scenes to give the club a brighter future.
Bristol Rovers is a unique club, with unique supporters.
Keep the faith.
Nick, Ed, Barry, Chris, Rod, Ken, Brian and Toni
