Bolton Wanderers fans plan protest for West Brom game

West Bromwich Albion | Published:

Bolton Wanderers fans are planning a mass protest against their owner for Albion's visit later this month.

University of Bolton Stadium

The Baggies travel to the University of Bolton Stadium on Monday, January 21, in a game that will be televised live on Sky Sports.

And disgruntled Bolton supporters are planning a demonstration against under-fire chairman and owner Ken Anderson.

Several Bolton fan groups have clubbed together to release a joint-statement.

It reads: "The name of Bolton Wanderers has been dragged into the mud continuously in recent times.

“This once proud football club has been subject to humiliation with winding up orders and failure to pay the wages of the players and staff.

“The lives of non-footballing staff, as well as those who have moved to Bolton on the pretence of a long-term career, have been messed about due the mismanagement of the club by Ken Anderson.

“Considering all of this, we feel as if there is no other option than to organise a protest before, during and after the game against WBA on Monday, January 21.

“In front of the Sky cameras, we need to voice our discontent. This is our football club and we shouldn’t stand idly by and watch it disappear.”

Albion fans had already threatened to boycott this match over expensive tickets but Bolton have since offered season ticket holders of both clubs a buy-one-get-one-free offer.
