West Wales’ part-owner Peter Tiffin confirmed in a statement that the club held a crisis meeting last Monday about the future of the club.
The Raiders went into the new year in far from ideal circumstances. They are currently without a Head Coach, following the departure of Aaron Wood. Assistants Ben Flower and Gareth Davies have also left the club. They also only had six contracted players at that time as well.
To make matters worse, they lost their Challenge Cup match 96-0 against Swinton at Stebonheath Park.
Despite the difficulties, Tiffin said the those still at the club are committed to making the club work.
Tiffin taking full responsibility for West Wales situation
He told the club website: “Last Monday we held a crisis board & staff meeting on not only the season ahead but the future of the club.
“It was an unanimous decision from all. Nobody wanted to see the club finish after all the hard work from everyone at the club currently.
“As part owner, I take full responsibility of the situation we were in last week. Each year, we seem to lose our head coach and this year was no different.
“We should have appointed a head coach straight away to support the staff we had put in place but left it and left it. After our board and staff meeting, we then wanted to invite all players past and present to our training facility in Bridgend to allow them all to speak up and feedback to us all on areas they wanted to see improving.
“From this meeting, we went from six contracted players to 28. Following this, we then employed a full time doctor, invited four of the head coaches that applied previously for an interview, three of the assistants who had been involved in the game in Wales plus other key areas within the club to support and guide the club in the right direction.”
