Wightlink Raiders logoSteve and I thought it was about time to let everyone know what our plans are for next season, and to let you know what is going on behind the scenes.

Since the end of the season, we have spent many hours looking at how the team performed, and we have been pouring over the finances trying to figure out what we should be doing next season.

As team owners, we have a responsibility to the fans, the players and our sponsors, to have a team that is sustainable and that can compete at any given level. Every fan wants value for money, and they want to be able to support a team that is at least competitive.

The bottom line is that running an EPL team is an expensive exercise, and a lot of work is now going on to try to secure the additional sponsorship that is needed to allow the Wightlink Raiders to remain in the EPL.

In previous years the team has been promised sponsorship and then committed to staying in the EPL, only to find at the start of the new season that the money was never there.  As a result, we have struggled financially, and this has also reflected in our performance as a team.  

This happened two seasons in a row, and we have made a conscious decision not to let it happen again, so we will be making our decision for next season based on the funding that is available in the next week or two.

We have some great plans for next season. We have spoken with all of the players and we would love the vast majority to stay. We are also talking with some very exciting prospects for player coach.

I am pleased to say that the other teams in the EPL, The EIHA and Planet Ice have all been really supportive towards us staying in the EPL.

We need to raise somewhere in the region of £30,000 in sponsorship. The good news is that we have some serious levels of interest in sponsoring the team, and there are some businesses out there who have already offered sponsorship of smaller, but significant amounts.

So, I realise that time is short, but this is where we are. We need to find the amount mentioned above within the next week or so, and we will stay in the EPL.  If you know businesses or individuals who are able to “dig deep” then please do put them in contact as soon as possible – as they say, every little helps, and we are really grateful to everyone who has done their bit in the last season to help keep us going. It is very much appreciated.
