A BOLTON Wanderers fan has taken out a full-page advert in The Bolton News to thank the club for “listening to the fans”.

Following Wednesday’s decision to scrap the planned sponsorship deal with payday lenders QuickQuid and link-up instead with Bolton-based energy firm FibrLec, the Nat Lofthouse Stand season ticket holder contacted our advertising department to send a message, which can be viewed in full on page 17 of today's paper, Saturday.

“Thanks to the chairman and board for listening to the fans and moving quickly to make things right,” the advert, from Mr M Burtonwood reads. “Now I can buy my shirt and we can support our team with pride.”
