Maybe we aren't going to Bolton Saturday then, it's the match day staff that will be the issue, the players will turn up but should the staff refuse to appear the safety certificate will not be granted and the game cannot then go ahead.

They could be wound up by Wednesday evening if no one stumps up to HMRC so a strike is probably the least of their problems!

Think I saw somewhere that there is only now on potential buyer Nd he was found to be unsuitable as a previous buyer attempt of bother Club.

I think it’s looking like curtains for Bolton now.

Believe it is the previous owner of Watford. Only been declared bankrupt 3 times in recent years.

Did see a comment from a Bolton fan they would rather see the club fold than be bought by him - strong stuff!

Do we really think that they will be wound up and all their results expunged from the league? Has that happened before, as if there isn't a precident I cant see it being allowed to happen. Surely someone will stump up some cash to stop them totally folding????

If the match is called off, will it be considered a forfeit for the home team?

Bolton denied safety certificate for Sat gme

Post by hallamblue » Tue Apr 02, 2019 4:34 pm

It’s not looking too good for Saturdays game guy!

The EFL has today been informed that the Safety Advisory Group (SAG), responsible for issuing the general safety certificate at Bolton Wanderers, has placed a prohibition notice on the Club under the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975.

As a result, all supporters will be prevented from entering the University of Bolton Stadium until the Club can demonstrate that the stadium can deliver the matchday operation to the standard required.

Prior to the meeting, called by the SAG, the Club confirmed it would be unable to commit to meet the obligations of its safety certificate until after a scheduled appearance at the High Court tomorrow (3 April).

SAG members concluded this would be a challenging timeframe to put an adequate plan in place to protect the safety of fans during upcoming home fixtures against Ipswich Town on Saturday 6 April and Middlesbrough on Tuesday 9 April.

The EFL is currently engaged with the Club in regard to how they intend to meet their fixture obligations.

SAG is a multi-agency panel which includes Bolton Council, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, North West Ambulance Service and St John Ambulance.

An EFL Spokesman said: “Whilst disappointed, the EFL understands the rationale for the position taken by the SAG at this time. However, we still hope the fixtures will take place as planned. We will work with the Club and offer them any practical assistance that is available to us in an attempt to find a successful and timely resolution to the issue.”

We could do with the win :)

And would it be a 3-0 win - forfeit-wise. A. Forfeit could be our top scorer or Player of the Year.

Hallam has lost the plot. Everything about the Bolton game situation is being covered by this thread but she keeps starting new ones. Is it possible to have thread Tourettes? :lol:

Todays court decision will go a long way to telling us fans with tickets for the Bolton game, whether it will go ahead or not. Bolton of course could get a winding up order if the don't pay £1.2million to the HMRC.

The Horwich Park Inn is the closest to the Ground mate.
