Bolton have called off their pre-season friendly against Oldham Athletic, whilst also adding dates with Atherton Collieries and Bamber Bridge to their summer schedule.

Wanderers had been due to make the short journey to Boundary Park on July 12, although the announcement of the fixture had been met with criticism from followers of both clubs.

Latics were relegated to the National League this past season and members of the Push The Boundary supporters group had urged their Trotters counterparts to stage a boycott as they continue to voice their discontent towards owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

In collaboration with the Bolton Wanderers Supporters' Trust, who met with club CEO Neil Hart last week, all parties have agreed to shelve plans for the game and both clubs will now seek alternative opposition.

Bolton have already made strides towards that, with a game at Atherton Collieries now booked in the diary for July 13 (KO 19:45), while they head down the A6 for a friendly against Bamber Bridge the following Tuesday (July 19) with kick-off at 19:30.
