Update following the club's appearance in the High Court

Bolton Wanderers can announce that the club has today been given an adjournment of 14 days by the High Court in order to conclude a deal with the Sports Shield Consortium in taking ownership of the club.

The club were represented by Trevor Birch and board member Richard Gee at the hearing in London on Monday. 

Trevor Birch, advisor to the board and owner at Bolton Wanderers, said: “Whilst this continues to be a challenging time for everyone associated with the club, we are confident that this adjournment will give us the necessary time to conclude a transfer of ownership of the club, subject to approval from The Football League.”
