THE Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust have appointed four new members to their board.

Robin Fletcher, Sue Higson, Will Jones and Paul Wood will now join Paul Brown, Simon Nightingale and Mike Smith to form a board of seven.

The Trust’s AGM has now been postponed due to the ongoing lockdown and will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity.

A statement read: “Bearing in mind the current uncertainty and anxiety associated with the worldwide Covid-19 situation, BWFCST board elections may seem to be low on the list of priorities.

“As members will be aware, the election process has been running for the last few weeks with nominations closing on March 16.

“The following is an update from the Election Management Group, which we are required to provide as part of the election process.

“We have received confirmation from Civica, our independent election advisors, that four nominations have been received and validated.

“As four positions were available, the four members who put their names forward will now take up a board position and there will not be a need for a members ballot to take place.”
