THE Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust say they are close to pulling together a potential rescue package for the club.

The trust board issued a statement yesterday giving a brief outline of their plan, also floating the idea of a share issue.

It read: “As we approach yet another winding up petition without any sign of resolution of the club ownership situation, we are working behind the scenes, as we have been for some months now, to find some way of pulling various parties together to protect the future of BWFC for the supporters and the community.

“We cannot give details at this moment due to the various parties requiring confidentiality to the discussions.

“However, we fully appreciate that we need to act to rescue our club and look for your support and trust over the next few days when we hope matters will become clearer.

“Additionally, if there is an appetite among supporters and the 5.5 per cent balance shareholders of Burnden Leisure Ltd and, indeed, the wider Bolton community for seeking to own the club, we are able to offer shares in the Community Interest Company.

"The more showing their support for such an initiative, the better our chances of saving our club.”
