The non-football staff at Bolton Wanderers will be paid some of their wages on Tuesday as the issues surrounding the club continue.
As has been well-documented, employees at the crisis club have been waiting months now for their pay, with the club going into administration earlier this month.
However, there was finally a positive update provided by Bolton News reporter Marc Iles earlier this evening.
“I understand that staff at #BWFC will be paid wages on Tuesday via BACS. Pay will be backdated to May 13 and made up to the end of the month to allow for inconvenience.”
Obviously, that still means they will be waiting for previous payments that didn’t arrive when Ken Anderson was owner, with the date going back to when the club were placed into administration.
However, it’s a positive step forward and will ease the pressure on staff who had been helped by an emergency food bank that was set up to help those who hadn’t been paid.
The players and coaches are still waiting for wages to be paid going back to March.
This is an awful situation for the employees at Bolton to be in and whilst this is still not good enough, at least they will be getting some money paid to them after the Bank Holiday.
Ultimately, it’s not on that the previous regime allowed this to happen and in the bigger picture it shouldn’t be the case that football clubs can do this.
Hopefully the issue will be resolved completely soon enough with everyone getting the wages they are owed.
