Bolton Wanderers Game Gets The Go Ahead

The Safety Advisory Group has withdrawn its prohibition notice meaning Saturday's game against Ipswich can go ahead.

Following the adjournment of the winding up order against Bolton Wanderers in the High Court yesterday the club has spoken to members of the Safety Advisory Group.

SAG is a multi-agency panel which includes Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, Bolton Council, North West Ambulance Service and St John Ambulance.

Following rigorous examination, the club has been able to reassure the group, to its satisfaction, that it is able to meet the legal conditions of the general safety certificate. Therefore the prohibition notice has been withdrawn.

A spokesperson for SAG said:

“We recognise that Bolton Wanderers Football Club is at the heart of our community and this has been a deeply regrettable situation.

“Partners are going above and beyond to put the plans in place to make sure games go ahead.

“Safety and security have always been our primary concern and we are pleased that the club has been able to reassure us that they are able to host the game in a safe manner.”
