Chester FC have seen Friday’s planned pre-season friendly at the Deva Stadium against Bolton Wanderers called off.
The first-team players of Bolton Wanderers made a statement released to the Bolton News, reading:
“We regret that we are having to resort to writing another statement but we feel it necessary to illustrate to the supporters and everyone connected with the football club the current position we face due to the ongoing problems.
“Following the news of the club going into administration, we were optimistic that the immediate financial problems surrounding the staff and players would be resolved in some way.
“As we understand it the administrators took control of the football club on May 13, including its day to day running, until a takeover is completed.
“This included the adoption of all employees’ contracts and, therefore, the full obligations that this entails.”
