Fans dig deep to help settle more than half Blues' £125k legal bill
GENEROUS Wycombe Wanderers fans have dug deep to cover more than half of an outstanding £125,000 legal bill in just over three days.
The Wycombe Wanderers Trust asked supporters and businesses on Tuesday to help them pay the legal bill accrued during the trust’s protracted takeover of the League Two club from Steve Hayes.
The appeal has proven to be successful, with fans and corporate firms reaching into their pockets to stump up more than half the legal fee already. The trust called the response “remarkable”.
In a statement, the trust said: “This is a remarkable response from our fan base and demonstrates the level of commitment that exists within the Wycombe district and beyond.
“When the Trust acquired control of our football club in late June 2012, it realised that there were bound to be some difficult times ahead and difficult decisions to be taken.
“But it also realised that the loyalty and dedication of our supporters was such that, providing we were open and honest about progress and issues as they arose, then we were assured of support.”
The trust added that the appeal for donations is still very much ongoing. Email email@example.com to make a pledge.
