KEN Anderson is considering hitting back at Forest Green chairman Dale Vince by launching his own T-shirt line.

In a 1,100-word web column which quoted politician Winston Churchill and poet John Lydgate, called into question comments by Bolton Baronesses Ann Taylor and Trish Morris, and pondered the environmental impact of a pint of beer – Anderson also escalated the war of words with the League Two counterpart.

Earlier this week Rovers chief Vince cheekily touted T-shirts to Bolton fans with the slogan “No Ken Do” in support of ousting Anderson as the club’s owner, with proceeds being donated to the Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust.

He had previously invited them to watch Rovers; upcoming game with Bury with the offer of a free drink.

“I have to say that I found the t-shirts FGR are selling quite humorous and I’m sure the Supporters Trust will greatly receive the funds they generate. We are thinking about printing our own which will say, ‘Yes We Ken’ and we will donate all proceeds to those employees of Ecotricity (Vince’s renewable energy firm) who were made redundant.

“That said, I am not sure where his offer of a free pint of beer fits in with his green philosophy.”

The argument between the two owners began when Bolton’s attempts to sign striker Christian Doidge were halted unceremoniously by a registration embargo imposed by the EFL.

Vince accused Anderson of reneging on the agreement, failing to pay his wages and challenging him to “bankrupt” the club by trying to reclaim money though the courts.

Anderson described Vince as “one of the strangest people I have ever met” and disputed the idea he had back-tracked on the contract to turn Doidge’s loan move permanent.

“He knows what he agreed in August 2018 and l have made it clear that we are still prepared to make the first payment, as always agreed from the outset, being next week when we receive the EFL distribution monies,” he said.

“If this is not now acceptable, then so be it, but don’t go blaming me for disappointing Christian as we have made it absolutely clear that he is welcome here.

“I understand that the only reason he won’t be here is because of Dale and that’s a shame as he is unable to play at any other clubs this season apart from FGR or us. “As regards the breach of contract claims, well that will be for the courts to determine, if it gets that far, as we intend to adhere to the agreement next week and if he rejects the payment, then as I said, it will be for the courts to determine which party is in breach of contract.”

Anderson passed comment on upcoming fans’ protests, adding: “If these people think this is beneficial to the club then so be it. Unfortunately, people seem to be coming to their own conclusions without knowing the full facts and believing everything they read.”

He also took aim at Baronesses Morris and Taylor, of Bolton, who had voiced their concerns at the running of the town’s football club.

“I would have thought that the two seasoned and respected politicians would have known better when it comes to the media and perhaps they should have taken the time to contact me to get the facts?

“In fact, Baroness Taylor used to be a frequent guest to the Chairman’s Suite on match days but hasn’t been for a while. Perhaps if she’d have still attended she would have been able raise her questions to me directly?

“As the English poet John Lydgate wrote: “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”

The under-fire chairman says he has received plenty of support from well-wishers and people within football, adding: “Fortunately, l get inspiration from some of the quotes of Winston Churchill and hopefully the following will help us all get through these difficult times,” he said.

“If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
