Bolton Wanderers Forced to Set up Emergency Food Bank for Their Unpaid Staff

Bolton Wanderers Forced to Set up Emergency Food Bank for Their Unpaid Staff

Bolton Wanderers have been forced to set-up an emergency food bank to help feed their unpaid staff, as administration continues to tighten its grip on the stricken English club.

The Trotters have been besieged with financial problems for several years now, but this season has seen off-field matters reach an all-time low.

Bolton have just been relegated from the English Championship and the BBC report that non-playing employees have not been paid for April, whilst the club’s players are yet to receive their salaries for March and April.

With the club’s accounts frozen by the administrators, the Bolton News have reported that local businesses have been donating items such toiletries and nappies, as well as tinned goods, pasta, rice, freezer meals, frozen vegetables and bread.

And the Bolton Community Trust have also been given assistance from within the wider football community, including an unnamed Championship club, who have donated £2000 of shopping vouchers for the staff to use in local supermarkets.

Bolton’s fall from grace is pretty remarkable when you consider they were in the Premier League up until 2012 – but what do you make of the dire situation?
