Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust was launched this month, on January 6th. It was registered with the Financial Conduct Authority on January 15th and it already has over 4,000 members.

They were backed by the passion, support and encouragement of Bolton Wanderers fans. When a football club is in crisis, fans will unite to save it.
