A REPORT issued by Wanderers’ administrators has revealed an eyewatering £25million in company creditors.

The document, seen by The Bolton News, is a statutory requirement after eight weeks in administration and lists 294 different secured and non-secured creditors, including a whopping £10,050,000 owed to the Fildraw Trust, who manage the affairs of late owner Eddie Davies.

Outgoing owner Ken Anderson is owed £1,578,042 as a secured creditor and a further £180,000 unsecured, and the club has run up a debt to former vice chairman Brett Warburton of £3,064,213.

Wanderers owe £2,747,122 to football creditors, including players and coaching staff.

Although it is too early to give an exact figure, administrators are currently forecasting a return of 35 pence in the pound to unsecured creditors.

In that scenario, Bolton Council will see only £612,053 for the £1,748,724 they are owed in business rates and other services.

HMRC would also recieve less than £1m of the near £2.5m owed in tax and VAT.

Yu Energy, who have supplied gas and electricity to the stadium and training ground, are owed more than £521,000. Another £85,391 is owed to water company United Utilities.

Several football agencies are listed in the document, the largest of which is Stellar at £371,288.

Debts have also racked up to the emergency services including North West Ambulance (£22,166) and Greater Manchester Police (£18,543) and St John’s Ambulance (£6,950).

A debt of £42,361 is payable to Sibcas, the Atherton-based company who lease offices and changing rooms to Wanderers at their Lostock training ground.

Wanderers also ran up a bill of more than £6,000 to local bakery Carrs Pasties.
