Quitters Never Win
July 31, 2015
BRFC were today given leave to appeal the High Court judgment in the Sainsbury’s contract dispute.
Mrs. Justice Proudman, who initially ruled in favour of the supermarket chain when she announced her verdict on Monday July 13th, agreed to allow an appeal after the club’s barristers outlined the central reasons for the application.
After digesting the initial judgment in full, lawyers felt that most of the points which Mrs. Justice Proudman was asked to consider, went in favour of the club.
It is this insight, and the ambiguity of the initial judgment statement, that has convinced BRFC they have a positive case going forward.
The club will now seek to have the hearing expedited in the hope it will be held in late 2015.
The board of BRFC say that they appreciate the support they have continued to receive from fans during this time.
Many supporters have approached members of the board during pre-season games, both home and away, to offer their support, and the over-whelming message has been one of:-
‘Don’t give up the fight’.
