Bolton players seek advice from PFA after going unpaid again


Bolton Wanderers players have announced they are seeking the advice of the PFA and the EFL over unpaid wages owed to them by owner Ken Anderson.

The players statement reads:

“We as a group of players feel extremely let down by Ken Anderson once again.

We were promised on Friday that our wages and the staff wages would be paid to us by today. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened. With no idea of when our wages will be paid our only option is to ask the PFA to take it up with the EFL and start proceedings on our behalf.

Hopefully the issue gets resolved very soon so we can all move forward as a group and put all our focus into winning games and staying in the league.”

It has been reported that Ken Anderson had agreed to pay the wages even if no deal was achieved with a consortium linked with buying the club.

Anderson had released a statement on February 24 stating that an agreement had been reached in principle to sell the club but no further progress seems to have been made.

There had been doubts that Bolton’s fixture with Millwall last weekend would go ahead, a game they eventually won 2-1, after concerns over safety.

The club also owe the Greater Manchester Police money over stewarding costs and have had their training ground closed in recent weeks due to financial problems, on top of the winding-up petition ordered by HM Revenue & Customs last month.

Bolton currently sit 23rd in the Championship table, five points from safety. The Trotters’ fans will be hoping that financial problems can be eradicated as Bolton’s situation looks dire on and off the field.
