DOZENS of Bolton Wanderers fans travelled to Gloucestershire on Saturday to join forces with Forest Green Rovers supporters during their league two match against Bury FC.

The Wanderers fans were there to vent their frustrations against Bolton chairman Ken Anderson following the failed transfer saga of striker Christian Doidge.

A bitter war of words broke out between Forest Green Rovers’ chairman, Dale Vince and Wanderers owner Mr Anderson following the apparent collapse of Doidge’s transfer to the University of Bolton Stadium at the start of this month.

Vince had questioned the attitude of Mr Anderson towards running the Championship club and has since started selling t-shirts poking fun at him.

The cheeky T-shirts had the logo “No Ken Do” for disgruntled Bolton fans, which were sold online. The first run was sold out in just a couple of days and profits passed on to the Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust.

The protest this weekend was described as a good humoured affair and Doidge was given lots of encouragement throughout the game by the Bolton fans, although he failed to score and Bury won the game 1-2.

Plans to walk out of the ground during tonight’s Bolton Wanderers match with West Brom on 58 minutes have been shelved.

But the protest as it stands involves supporters meeting at the Nat Lofthouse’s statue at 7.15pm and marching on a lap of the stadium before congregating again at the front of the stadium in full view of the TV cameras.

Writing on Bolton Wanderers Facebook page, Mr Anderson stated: “The club is aware of planned action by some supporters ahead of the game.

“I really hope that common sense prevails and that these don’t take place as I certainly don’t think that they will be helpful for the club or the team as they prepare for the game.

“However, if they do, then I hope they are done as peacefully as possible and do not cause any disruption to the match itself as we certainly don’t want to face any punitive action by the football authorities.”

Season ticket holders have been offered the chance to “bring a friend for free” for tomorrow's match.
