Fans groups Time To Go, the Shareholders Association and Wednesdayite have planned a protest against the Owls board before tomorrow’s home match against Walsall.

The groups issued a joint statement today to outline the protest plans, which are to be held due to a lack of response from the club with regards to details over the future of the Owls.

The trio issued an initial statement last week to call for a response from the club ‘over conflicts of interest that we see as preventing the current board from taking unbiased decisions regarding the immediate future of SWFC.’

And after receiving no communication from the club, the fans groups have called for action to be taken against the board – starting tomorrow night on Parkside Road (by the directors car park opposite the south stand) between 6-6.30pm.

The full statement reads: ‘On 19th November Sheffield Wednesday fans groups Wednesdayite, the Shareholders Association and Time To Go issued a statement calling for an immediate response from the club. The statement principally related to concerns over conflicts of interest that we see as preventing the current board from taking unbiased decisions regarding the immediate future of SWFC and the ongoing search for a lifesaving investment package.

We concluded this statement with a clear warning that the lack of an appropriate response would lead to the escalation of actions against the current board. Wednesdayite have carried out an on‐line survey of members and an overwhelming majority of respondents have backed an escalation which includes protest as well as other action. As the club have failed to contact any of the fans groups or issue any kind of response to the statement we have no alternative but to follow through with our plans.

Protest action will begin at tomorrow`s game against Walsall.

We strongly encourage anyone in support of protest action to gather on Parkside Road by the Directors car park between 6pm and 6.30pm tomorrow (23rd November). Depending on weight of numbers a briefing will take place at 6.30pm when we will outline our protest plans for the evening.

We encourage all participants to follow our brief and to only protest within the relevant laws and regulations.
