Bolton Wanderers saved as takeover deal goes though

Wednesday 28th August 2019

Bolton Wanderers have been saved after being bought by Football Ventures. The League 1 side had been 14 days away from expulsion from the EFL, a fate that has already happened to neighbours Bury.

Bolton are now out of administration and free to complete the rest of the season. They may face a tough fight for survival though - the club currently sit bottom of the league having drawn one and lost 3. They started the season on -12 points due to administration and are 11 points adrift at the bottom.

Worse still, the club are currently managerless and only have a handful of first team players on their books - although they have fielded mainly youth team players in the first 4 games of the season.
