Nine Bolton Wanderers fans have found themselves banned from the ground after the club's recent clash with Wigan Athletic was marred with trouble.

During the ill tempered fixture several ejections were made on the day.

Trouble continued outside the ground as paramedics were called and police had to use riot gear.

Following this the club has identified individuals involved and nine have been suspended from the University of Bolton stadium.

In order to be able to return to a future game they will have to meet with the club's safety and safeguarding teams and also with Greater Manchester Police

Police will have the option to take further action against them if this goes ahead.

Wanderers’ Chief Executive Officer Neil Hart said the club had a "long term plan" to root out more individuals responsible for offences.

He said: “Disorder and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated at the University of Bolton Stadium and these steps show that we will take action.

“There also remains a long term plan to identify further individuals responsible for antisocial actions and offences.

“This will continue throughout the season with Bolton Wanderers' Football Club working alongside partner agencies and Greater Manchester Police to ensure incidents seen at previous fixtures are eradicated and to ensure that supporting and watching Wanderers is a safe and enjoyable experience.”

The club is also introducing a compulsory membership scheme for all supports who buy a ticket to help the club be aware of who is entering the stadium and to maximise safety.
