Wanderers’ captain Antoni Sarcevic met with a group of fans yesterday to discuss the start of Sky Bet League One campaign, in line with the EFL Return to Fans Season Launch.
These supporters were a part of the Bolton Wanderers in the Community Extra Time Hub program, which encourages those aged 55 and over to connect with other like-minded people, promoting physical activity and socialising.
When speaking on the event, skipper Sarcevic said: “I think the end of last season has made it a positive. The fans have all bought into what the team has done, what the manager has done and what we are about. And I think it will only help us more than it will away teams.
“Honestly it has been so nice having them back – I brought the little ones to the family day and it’s little things like that which mean a lot to the lads on the pitch.
“Watching on the telly is completely different to watching in the stadium, so you didn’t hear opinions, and that was as hard for the fans as it was for us because it can spur you on.
“I think they will quickly realise what a good group we are and the honesty we show out there on the pitch.
“The eras they have witnessed, the players they have seen play on here, I can’t argue with that.
“We’re the players for now and the future so it’s up to us to put smiles back on people’s faces and get Bolton Wanderers back to where it belongs.
“It was exciting when the recruitment was going on and I knew some of the lads who were coming in, and they have all bedded in perfectly. It is exactly the same as what we had last season – confidence, happiness and it stems on to the pitch. We cannot wait for Saturday."
