From the Evening News, October 14, 1992

MORE than 20 per cent of Burnden Park regular supporters are ready to support a boycott of Bolton Wanderers' home games, according to a fans' survey.

Organisers petitioned supporters at Saturday's home game against Hartlepool, which Wanderers lost 2-1 to drop into the bottom seven in the Second Division.

They say they collected the names of more than 1,000 of the hard core, who are prepared to stay away in a protest directed at the Burnden directors. "We want rid of this board," said one fan. "They have been there too long and are lacking in ambition."
