Bolton Settle Debts to Football Creditors

The long-term financial security of Bolton Wanderers took a step forward on Thursday, after outstanding money owed to football creditors was paid in full.

Controversy struck following the Football Ventures' successful takeover of the club in August, when it was decided players whose contracts had run over from last season - Ben Alnwick, Remi Matthews, Jason Lowe and Luke Murphy - would be paid immediately, whilst those who fell out-of-contract over the summer would be made to wait.

Prior to granting their approval of a purchase, EFL chiefs lobbied for such creditors to be settled on November 7 - a date which Football Ventures agreed to and have now adhered.

A report from administrators, filed at Companies House, showed a total just shy of £2.75million was owed, with a percentage of the remaining figure - in the region of £10million - in the process of being repaid to unsecured creditors as part of ongoing business.
