PHIL Brown has promised to delve into his extensive backlog of Wanderers anecdotes as part of a revamped AGM meeting for the Supporters’ Trust.

The Swindon Town boss, who made more than 300 appearances as a player and served for nine years alongside Colin Todd and Sam Allardyce in the dugout, will be the guest of honour on July 18 at the Platinum Suite.

Boyd Crossley – the man who served for 23 years as club mascot Lofty the Lion – will also be up on stage, put through his paces by BBC Radio Manchester’s Jack Dearden.

The fun evening is open to all BWST members – and on the night there will be a special raffle to win a family season ticket to the Macron Stadium worth more than £800.

Other signed merchandise is also up for grabs - including a shirt from the 2016 Legends game - and guests can also help themselves to a pie and pea supper to round things off.

The trust is seeking to re-engage with a membership of around 3,000 people by making events like the AGM more fan-friendly.

The meeting starts at 7pm. To book a free ticket, visit the Supporters’ Trust website on or email with relevant membership numbers to

Any motions which are to be put to the AGM must be sent by trust members to the same email address by July 11.

The trust has also linked up with the Community Trust to sponsor all fixtures for the Wanderers Ladies team this season.

Trust Chairman Terence Rigby commented: “We are delighted to be supporting Bolton Wanderers Ladies Football Club and we are looking forward to working in partnership with Bolton Wanderers Community Trust once again on this and further projects in the future.”

The two organisations joined forces two years ago to stage the Legends game at the Macron, featuring the likes of Jay Jay Okocha, John McGinlay and Jussi Jaaskelainen.
