A note from the Chairman

I’m sure that like me you will have all really missed watching Bolton Wanderers in action at the weekend.

The international break does have its benefits, in that the players can enjoy a well-deserved rest from competitive action, but given the tremendous start we’ve experienced we didn’t want the break to happen just yet!

That said, the players have worked tremendously hard on the training ground and it does give that little bit of extra time for the new players in the squad to get to know their team mates better and for them to acclimatise to their new surroundings.

They are all eager to get back out on to the field of play at the University of Bolton Stadium and resume from where they left off.

Saturday’s opponents, QPR, are at the other end of the table and will be looking to try and build up some momentum to get points on the board. I expect the game to be a tough encounter and one which we must be at the top of our game to get something from the contest.

As we saw at Preston, just before the break, our travelling army of fans really helped inspire the players to bounce back into the game. Every one of you who was at Deepdale really played your part.

On Saturday, we need every single one of you at the University of Bolton Stadium to make the atmosphere as loud and as passionate as it can be. You will make the difference!

If you haven’t already got your tickets for the match you can do so now by clicking here and ordering them online or by visiting Bolton Central in person.

Alternatively, if you would like to try one of our fantastic award winning hospitality packages, why not give our Sales Team a call on 01204 673761 or email sales@bwfc.co.uk to discuss the various options.

I’d also like to remind you that it’s still possible to buy a 2018/19 Bolton Wanderers season ticket and you can still make a big saving compared to buying tickets on a match by match basis.

Every single penny that is spent on match tickets and season tickets gets reinvested into the playing squad and will help the manager strengthen the team. Click here for more details.

The weekend just gone marked the 130th anniversary of the first Football League round of matches. The history books will always show that Bolton Wanderers Football Club were one of the founder members and it is something that we are very proud of. Indeed, one of our own home grown players, Kenny Davenport, had the honour of scoring the league’s first ever goal. That honour is permanently remembered in a plaque that was placed near to the original site of Pikes Lane, our former ground prior to moving to Burnden Park in 1895, almost two years ago.

Although the game has changed and society has progressed significantly over those 130 years, the love and passion of football has never faltered and it’s imperative that as the custodian of this great football institution I make sure the club can continue to entertain the good people of Bolton for many more years to come.

I look forward to seeing you at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday.

Be loud, be proud and get behind the boys.

Kind regards,
