FURTHER confusion has emerged as Wanderers slide towards administration – with Ken Anderson also claiming he issued instructions at the court room yesterday.

The outgoing owner sent out an official club statement this morning which stated that he had filed a Notice of Intent at the High Court before the hearing.

Fildraw, who act in the interests of late owner Eddie Davies, filed their documents inside the court as Wanderers were granted a two-week adjournment in a winding-up case brought by HMRC and other creditors.

The time was granted to allow the club and its hotel to appoint an administrator, although that process could now be complicated as Anderson, Fildraw and Prescot Business Park – the company who have security on the hotel and car parks – negotiate how it will be funded and who will actually manage the process.

It is hoped an administrator can be in place by the end of the week, although an NOI can last for 10 days and potentially be re-applied by the court.

The statement read: “Ken Anderson filed the Notice of Intent to appoint an administrator forms with the court yesterday morning for both Bolton Wanderers Football Club and Bolton Whites Hotel in his position as a qualifying floating charge holder on both companies. Later in the day Flidraw Limited, on behalf of the late Eddie Davies's Trust, also filed similar documents for both Burnden Leisure and Bolton Wanderers Football Club having served demand notices on both companies earlier in the day.

“Although the procedure of formally appointing the Administrator can take up to 10 days the hope is that this matter will be finalised very shortly allowing the work to commence immediately on the process needed to be undertaken.

“The long-term security of the club, its supporters and the loyal staff is paramount in the hope of a speedy resolution to the process.”
