A note from the Chairman

Chairman Ken Anderson addresses the club's fans on bwfc.co.uk

The amount of trading that took place on transfer deadline day has no doubt had a transitional effect on the squad.

But in my view, it has freshened things up and provides us with a degree of flexibility and versatility which will ultimately give us more options in how we play.

I must praise all the hard work that was put in by the manager and all the football staff to get those new signings on board. 

From the scouting and recruitment staff, to all those who work in the medical department and those in football administration, everybody worked tirelessly.

On balance, the draw we achieved at stadiummk on Saturday was hard fought and well earned. I was pleased with the performance against what was an in-form team who had scored nine goals in their last two games and also played in front of their highest ever crowd in League One.

The point was all the more impressive given that we lost Andrew Taylor during the warm up through a groin injury and had to play the final ten minutes a man down after Lawrie Wilson had to go off with an injury.

Although our new signings will take time to fully acclimatise to their new surroundings, I was pleased with the additional pace and flexibility they offered. 

We will meanwhile be looking to bring in another player who will be a free agent to strengthen our defence.

I'm sure you will all be looking forward to seeing them at Macron Stadium this coming week where we have two games in quick succession when we entertain Walsall and Rochdale.

Our Super 7 season ticket, which begins with the Rochdale game on Tuesday 14 February, has also proved to be very popular. 

It allows you to watch the final seven home games at Macron Stadium at a great value price, as well as giving you the other benefits of being a Bolton Wanderers season ticket holder. These can be purchased online by CLICKING HERE and also in Bolton Central.

We've also got offers on our home and away replica shirts so now is the time to treat yourself and get some of our new players' names on the back of one.

I've already seen some great photographs of our young fans sporting 'Le Fondre' on their shirts. You can buy these online by visiting www.bwfcdirect.co.uk.

Your support for the club is as crucial now as it has ever been. You have been our twelfth man this season and it's vital that you continue in the same vein as we embark on the final phase of the campaign. 

We have strengthened the squad, we are well placed in the league and we are determined to get over the line to bounce back into the Championship.

Let's be loud, let's be proud and let's get behind the boys.

Kind regards,
