YOU may have noticed a blue ‘premium’ square pop up in the top corner of some of our Bolton Wanderers stories today, let us explain why…

Loads of you have walked into a newsagent to buy a copy of the paper, some of you even remember getting The Buff after a game at Burnden Park. We have brought you the very best coverage of Wanderers from day one – so now we are asking you to subscribe to read some of our quality stories online.

I have covered Wanderers in every division from the Premier League down to League Two (and will hopefully do the same in reverse), enjoyed the glittering nights in Europe, seen joys and disappointments at Wembley, and trekked all over the world to see the team in pre-season.

I have always tried to offer a voice the fans can trust, asking questions of the club’s hierarchy, giving criticism when it was due in the bad times, and savouring the opportunity to dish out praise when things were going well.

Reporting on Bolton Wanderers has become my life, and I back myself to bring you stories and features which are worth the investment.

And with the recent addition of our digital sports writer, Dan Barnes, we are able to offer even more breadth to our coverage of the Whites. He even knows how to use Tik Tok.

Don’t worry – we are not disappearing completely behind a paywall. We will continue to bring you free-to-read stories every day, news from the UniBol, Matchday Live on a Saturday, the hugely popular Buff Podcast, plus reaction from manager, players and fans. But we are also offering another level of coverage, from in-depth exclusive interviews with the people who matter at Wanderers, detailed analysis, video, audio, columns plus pictures and stories from our unparalleled archives.

You will also be able to access most of the written premium content the good old-fashioned way, by picking up a paper.

We are currently offering subscription to The Bolton News for the introductory price of just £2 for two months.

And you won’t just get boosted Wanderers coverage – there are plenty more benefits from digital subscription to The Bolton News, including much lighter advertising, quicker screen loading, hundreds of exclusive reader rewards and discounts, a selection of 50 new puzzles every week and full access to all the news we bring you from across the town on a daily basis.

For the next few days we will be allowing access to some premium articles so you can get a taste for what to expect.
