Bolton Training Ground Closes Because There's No Food

Bolton Training Ground Closes Because There's No Food

The financial walk to Calvary at Bolton Wanderers continues to weave its way along on an ever-darkening path after news emerged this afternoon of an unbelievable set of circumstances that have forced the Lancashire club's Lostock Training Ground to close.

There is no food available, on site!

It's the latest in a myriad of issues being faced by the Championship club. With relegation to English football's thrid tier at this point looking imminent in the Summer, owners have not been able to pay staff or players their wages for January, as chairman Ken Anderson continues to try to escape from The Trotters.

Phil Parkinson's went on strike prior to the start of this year's Championship campaign and even refused to play a pre-season friendly against St. Mirren after players were not remunerated for services in June 2018.


A potential sale to a Cheshire based consortium had been due to be finalised last week, but now Sky Sports suggest that this is unlikely.

The club will be in the High Court this month to face a winding-up order petitioned by HM Revenue and Customs over unpaid tax duties.

On the field, the team's fortunes haven't been much better. They sit one off the foot of the Championship table and have only managed one victory - last month's triumph away to Birmingham - in this calendar year. With eleven games left, they find themselves seven points from safety.


On Saturday, they lost Craig Noone and David Wheater to red cards in a two-nil defeat to Swansea.
