The Club have today made the following statement regarding Eric France Metal Recycling:
JKL (Wakefield) Ltd, of which Eric France Metal Recycling are a trading style, has gone into a creditors’ voluntary liquidation in recent days.
Following a creditors meeting with administrators KPMG yesterday (Tuesday), it appears highly unlikely that Eric France Metal Recycling will be able to fulfil their commitment of a significant six-figure sum as the Club’s main sponsor.
Whilst this is a hole to fill in the Club’s budget, the areas of sponsorship available are the most prestigious with main shirt sponsor, East Stand sponsor and the back of the playing and replica shirts, making it an attractive proposition to a number of companies.
The Club is active in the market in its attempts to find a replacement sponsor and when such a time comes that this is achieved, supporters will be consulted about the range of replica merchandise that carries the Eric France brand.
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
