Bolton Wanderers saved as takeover deal goes though

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.
