A note from the Chairman

Chairman Ken Anderson offers an update to the club's supporters ahead of Tuesday's visit of Coventry

Our victory over Millwall on Saturday was most pleasing – from the first whistle to the last, the players were absolutely superb and come full time, there was no doubting who the worthy winners of the game were.

It was also fantastic to see one of the club’s home grown players in Josh Vela get on the scoresheet yet again and do so in style.

As I’ve mentioned previously, the hard work that goes on up at the academy is crucial and when you see players such as Josh become key members of the first team, it simply reiterates the importance of youth at this football club.

Overall however, Saturday’s victory was a big one for us – given results elsewhere, it means that we remain within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots.

With the hectic festive period fast approaching and 2017 on the horizon, our aim of being in the mix in the upper echelons of the league table come the turn of the year is still very much a reality.

Hopefully our excellent form at home and also our recent run of six victories in seven league outings will continue tonight against Coventry City.

Aside from matters on the field, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you all of the evening with myself which will take place in the Platinum Suite tomorrow night.

Running from 7pm until 8pm, I want to give you, the supporters, the chance to put forward any questions you may have for myself so that we can build upon and strengthen the relationship between us.

I hope as many of you as possible can attend and I look forward to meeting some of our fans which have been influential in the team’s successes so far this season.

Finally, I’d also like to congratulate one of our staff members at Bolton Whites Hotel, Jimmy McKay, on his successful charity dinner last week.

The evening itself raised £26,000 for Derian House Children’s Hospice, a local organisation which Jimmy and the football club have been supporting for a number of years. This takes his running fundraising total to £85,000.

There are still a number of auction items meanwhile, details of which can be found on Jimmy's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/james.mckay.7798.

Please show your support for him and of course, a worthy cause in Derian House.

Kind regards,
