Statement From BRSC
September 2, 2005
[image1]Following the complete surprise news today of Ryan Williams loan move to Aldershot for a month, BRSC had a busy day fielding calls from concerned Gasheads.
This evening we released this statement.
Bristol Rovers Supporters Club Committee Chairman John Malyckyj has today contacted Geoff Dunford, Chairman of BRFC to express our deep concern about the circumstances surrounding the departure of Ryan Williams to Aldershot on a month’s loan.
The merits of Ryan Williams as a player can be debated, but to many fans he represents the spirit and commitment that our supporters want to see from our team. BRSC has conveyed its disquiet at the apparent treatment of the player by the manager, placing him on the transfer list without actually talking to him before his name was circulated.
It is felt that these actions tarnish the reputation of Bristol Rovers which as a club should have respect for the individual, be they player, staff or supporter.
Supporters Club staff at 199 Two Mile Hill and Pirate Leisure have fielded many, many calls from fans who share this sense of unease and frustration with the actions of the football club and this notice officially places the Supporters Club Committee concerns on record as well.
