Former Bolton captain Kevin Nolan hopes the process of administration can prove to be a blessing in disguise for the club.

Nolan, who progressed through the Wanderers academy to make 345 senior appearances between 2000 and 2009, remains a fan favourite at the University of Bolton Stadium and has remained close to staff who helped to pave the way for him almost 20 years ago.

Following Tuesday's revelation that a food bank had been opened to provide food and essentials to staff, Nolan expressed his sadness at the situation.

"All of us who love the club, we're hoping this is now the start of something and [the club] can look forward again," Nolan told BBC Radio 5 live.

"To be putting food banks up is a sorry state of affairs. It's heart-breaking to see. I'm still very close with a lot of people there behind the scenes.

"There are people who have been there through thick and thin for Bolton who are now having to rely on food banks to make ends meet - it's so sad.

"I'm hoping this administration can get the club back on an even keel. It's a special club. We had some special times and I hope this is the start of more special things to come."
