Wasps not to blame for Wanderers' financial plight
WASPS have moved quickly to quash claims from some Wycombe Wanderers supporters that the football club is facing a winding up order because of unpaid Wasps debts.
Some Blues fans believe that Wasps owe up to £250,000 to the football club, and that if the rugby club paid up then Wanderers could avoid a high court hearing scheduled for March 25.
However, a Wasps statement issued yesterday morning says: "London Wasps can confirm that there are currently no amounts outstanding between the two clubs, except for the usual day-to-day trading balances arising in the normal course of business under the ground sharing agreement.
"The management teams of the two clubs are in frequent contact and the relationship between the two remains cooperative, productive and mutually supportive."
Wanderers are not disputing this statement.
Wasps were in a similar position to Wanderers this time last year, when they faced going out of business because of lack of funds.
However, a consortium led by Ken Moss stepped up with a short-term solution and it's understood the club is now poised to announce new, long-term investors.
