THE Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust has applauded the club for how they have handled the issue of season ticket refunds.

Wanderers announced today that they would offer full refunds to fans who missed four home games last season during lockdown – but that those who waived the money would be entered into a prize draw to win a selection of different rewards.

The trust had polled its members early in the summer to provide a good indication that the majority of supporters would leave their money in the club, which is expected to save around £200,000.

A statement from the BWFCST said: “The Supporters’ Trust welcomes the statement from Sharon and Michael with regards to season ticket refunds for games missed and sales for the 20/21 season.

“We are happy to have been of assistance for the club in spearheading the initiative for season ticket holders who could afford to do so to waive and refund due to them, and our members stepped up to the plate and showed their support at this very challenging time.

“We are at the start of a huge and exciting rebuilding project at the club we all love and it’s great that we can work in unison with the board to help where we can.

“We look forward to being able to collaborate on other projects very soon.”
