Having run the Club for 20 years we have no wish to see its great history and traditions disappear and so we have no choice but to seek the appointment of an administrator to give the Club protection from its creditors.
We are working with a number of parties who have already expressed an interest in securing the future of the Club, its position in the Super League and the benefits that it brings to the local Community.
We wish to see the future of the Club resolved as quickly as possible so that the Wildcats can enter the 2011 Super League season with stable financial and commercial foundations. With the right ownership and support from the fans and local community we are confident that the Club will have a bright and successful future.
We are also very optimistic that any new owners will have strong local links as well as being proven enthusiastic supporters of sport in the Wakefield area.
The Company's board would like to pay tribute to all our loyal fans and thank them for their support and patience over many seasons. In the same way, we are very proud of all the players, coaching personnel, staff and volunteers who have worked so hard to maintain the clubs super league status over the past 12 seasons and given the fans the memories they have enjoyed over these years.
Every member of the board is willing to help any new owners in whatever way they wish during the transition as every one of the board members has, as always, the best interests of the Club at heart. However, we recognise that new owners will wish to bring in their own business teams to move the Club forward.
The appointment of the administrator is expected to be confirmed on 7 February 2011 at the end of the statutory notice period.
All expressions of interest in the future of the Company or the Club should be addressed to Peter O' Hara of O'Hara's at the Club's Belle Vue address.
No further statement will be issued on this matter.
