Gloucester Rugby Chairman Tom Walkinshaw is set to acknowledge the patience of the club's season ticket holders in recent weeks by announcing an extension of the deadline for seat holders to renew their seats for 2009-10.
The original deadline for current seat holders to renew their seats was set for 3:30pm on Friday May 29th.
However, feedback from supporters has indicated that, whilst they are keen to continue showing their support, a number of them have been reluctant to commit until the results of Walkinshaw's internal review have been communicated.
Said review of the 2008-9 season has been ongoing for some time now and an announcement is expected in the next couple of weeks as Walkinshaw finalises his thoughts.
Taking that into account, a letter will be sent to all season ticket holders next week thanking the 2000 plus supporters who have already committed, acknowledging the concerns of those who haven't and, as a result, announcing a two week extension to the original deadline.
