The Bolton Whites Hotel reopened to customers on Wednesday, but only after administrators were appointed to oversee business affairs.

Since closing on May 1 after finances dried up to an extent where health and safety standards were not guaranteed to be met, facilities could only be used for hospitality and banqueting events hosted by Heathcote & Co.

With finances never far from the headlines at the University of Bolton Stadium, advisory firm Quantuma Limited promptly placed Andrew Hosking, Sean Bucknall and Michael Kiely in charge after Ken Anderson was removed from his position of power.

It is not the first time Quantuma have been involved with Wanderers, having overseen the transfer of shares from Dean Holdsworth to Ken Anderson in August 2017 after the company of the former - Sports Shield BWFC - was liquidated at the High Court.

Mr Hosking, who will take a lead role in the administration process, says it was imperative the hotel opened its doors to the public if the business was to be saved.

Speaking to The Bolton News, he said: "The joint administrators will be seeking to resume trading of the hotel at the earliest opportunity.

"The hotel is an integral part of the club and with the football season having drawn to a close, it is our priority to ensure that operations at the hotel resume and revenues are generated.

"We will be working closely with the joint administrators of Bolton Wanderers Football and Athletic Club and Burnden Leisure Limited to assist in achieving the optimum outcome for creditors and securing a long-term future for the club."
