Saracens have options
Having failed to get back to the Hornet's by the agreed deadline, Saracen's chief executive Edward Griffiths has revealed the Sarries have spoken to '30 or 40'parties regarding a move.
One development being considered is Copthall Stadium, a former athletics ground in Barnet, currently used by Kentish Town FC. Other venues the egg-chasers have been linked with include the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, Wembley (which has since been ruled out), Loftus Road and Craven Cottage.
Copthall Stadium faces a massive overhaul to be fit for use by the Men in Black and this was denied to Barnet FC in 2001 after uproar from local residents.
"At the moment, to provide a commentary on all of our contact with stadium owners would be difficult - it is a long list.
"There are a whole range of options that we are looking at. There are probably 30 or 40 various bodies we have spoken to in the past two years.
"As soon as we reach anything approaching a formal level then we will be clear about that."
The deadline to declare whether they would play at Vicarage Road next season was September 3rd, yet Griffiths says the Hornet's tenants hope to make an announcement by the end of the year:
"I would like to make an announcement tomorrow but you can`t force these things and this is going to be a decision which will be absolutely critical to the future of the club.
"We are not wasting time. Every day we are having various meetings and discussions about various options and as soon as we get to a point where we can announce something then we will.
"I would think we will have a decision by the end of the year.'
