Wanderers Owner Ken Anderson Apologises And Confirms Staff Will Be Paid

In his latest statement to fans Ken Anderson has apologised to staff and address several other issues.

Players and all other staff were not paid their February wages as financial problems at the club continue.

It led to crunch talks between the club, council and emergency services yesterday over concerns that safety standards for Saturday's game could not be maintained due to lack of stewards.

In the statement Ken Anderson said

"I am concerned, disappointed and deeply regret that I had to take the decision to delay paying the staff salaries on time last month, which is the first time this has happened during my ownership and apologise unreservedly to all the staff and sincerely thank them for their continued support and patience, but it is difficult to accept putting a further £1m into a club that does not want you there"

Mr Anderson also confirmed that bans on select members of the media having access to the club have been lifted and that talks with potential buyers are still ongoing.

It has also been confirmed that the club have settled an outstanding bill with Greater Manchester Police and others to try and ensure Saturday's game with Millwall goes ahead. The Council are due to confirm whether they have enough assurances to allow that to happen.
