BOLTON Wanderers Supporters’ Trust are staging an open meeting to discuss a range of topics surrounding their club.

Board members have issued an open invitation to all those concerned with the uncertainty at the Whites, with a date and venue to be announced.

“In view of the continuing uncertainty surrounding our club and the events in the High Court yesterday, we are in the process of arranging an open meeting for all BWFC supporters,” read a statement on behalf of the trust.

“The intention is to invite as many of the major parties involved with the long term future of BWFC and to use as a forum to enable matters to be discussed as openly as possible.

“If the planned and publicised take-over is completed in the meantime, the guest of honour will, undoubtedly, be the new owner. If no take-over has been completed, there will be much to discuss. We are looking to hold the meeting as soon as practically possible and will announce further details as they are finalised.”

Meanwhile, Phil Parkinson has paid tribute to the 700-plus crowd that cheered his side on to victory at QPR last Saturday.

Though heavily outnumbered by the home supporters at Loftus Road, the manager is hopeful similar backing will be given to his troops when they play the first of two vital matches on home turf.

“The supporters at QPR were outstanding,” he said ahead of today’s game and the Middlesbrough visit on Tuesday night. “I have to mention that because, despite all this going on, they came down to London in their numbers.

“I thought they were great from minute one, I thank them for the support we got from the fans, right from the first minute to the last.

“And tomorrow in what will be a tough game we’ve got to be prepared to go to the wire. It’s going to be hard-fought and everybody’s got to be ready.”
