|WASPS MOVE GETS CLOSER
(Wednesday 23rd January 2002)
The proposed move to bring London Wasps in as tenants to Adams Park is nearing a conclusion according to a statement released by the Club on the Wanderers' Official website.
The statement included the following quote from Club Chairman Ivor Beeks "We are a long way down the line and are close to agreement. There are a number of issues to be addressed but further meetings will be held to bring matters to a successful conclusion. This could be a very exciting time in the history of the club and so it is imperative we get everything right before committing ourselves".
Earlier in January the proposal hit a snag after the two parties were reported to be in disagreement over the rental charge for use of Adams Park. There were also reports that Wasps Chairman Chris Wright was reluctant to move the Club away from their Loftus Road base. Wasps Director of Rugby Nigel Melville said in a statement on 10th January "The London Wasps Holdings Board led by Chris Wright are very aware of the issues and I am sure that they will do what is right for London Wasps. This issue is not about QPR, Fulham or Wycombe, it is about the future of London Wasps!"
Since then Melville has been collating the views of their fans and is set to issue a report outling his findings. He said "I was impressed with the positive responses I received, it is easy to get emotional about relocation, but it is important that we address the real issues we face, both short, medium and long term."
Wasps attempts to find a new home have been made more urgent by the recent news that Fulham have received the go-ahead on the development of Craven Cottage. Fulham are looking to share with QPR at Loftus Road from the start of next season and Wasps might find that two's company but three's a crowd.
