A Note From The Chairman

We were delighted to be able to confirm the signing of Adam Le Fondre on a permanent basis on Tuesday afternoon – a capture which I am sure went down very well amongst our fan base.

Even prior to my arrival at the football club, Adam had already proven his worth to you all in his initial loan spell during the 2014/15 campaign and when the opportunity arose for us to bring him back here in January, it was one which we knew would reap dividends.

Having a player with his calibre and experience in our ranks will always be a positive and he proved during the final months of the campaign just why he has been so highly rated throughout his career – efforts which ultimately convinced Phil Parkinson and myself to move and secure his services permanently.

In Adam we have a player who desperately wants to play for Bolton Wanderers Football Club and in football, that kind of dedication and determination is crucial to success.

I look forward to seeing him in action come August, alongside Gary Madine, David Wheater, Jem Karacan and Andrew Taylor who are already on board for our 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Of course, the work is not finished by any stretch of the imagination and we will be working hard during the coming days and weeks to boost the overall quality of our first team squad. Please stay tuned to the club’s official communication channels to keep fully informed.

The success of our promotion campaign last season meanwhile has seen an increase in the number of supporters who have purchased season tickets for the very first time.

With just under four days to go until the Early Purchase Deadline, we are on course to sell more season tickets for the Sky Bet Championship campaign than last term.

Around 10% of all sales so far are to supporters who haven’t held a season ticket in the past, proving that Bolton Wanderers Football Club is offering excellent value for money by becoming a season ticket holder instead of buying tickets on a match-by-match basis.

The Early Purchase Deadline ends at 5.30pm this Saturday and we encourage all supporters to renew or purchase their season tickets ahead of this date to receive the best possible prices.

I cannot emphasise enough how important season ticket holders are to the club. By getting your season tickets early and backing the club, it allows us to directly invest in the squad and the facilities both at Macron Stadium and Lostock.

We’ve had some great momentum so far and it shows no signs of slowing down. If you haven’t already, please buy yours before June 10.

Click here to renew or purchase your season tickets today. If you are a member of the club’s Lifeline scheme you will be also able to benefit from a 5% discount on your 2017/18 season ticket.

For more information, please email lifeline@bwfc.co.uk or 01204 673774 and I look forward to seeing you all back at Macron Stadium in two months’ time.

Kind regards,
