It was good news to hear I had been given a place on the BWFCST’s Board. The news was tempered by the Corona Virus pandemic.

I have been a Bolton Wanderers supporter since the 1960’s and a season ticket holder for nigh on 50 years.

I believe the Trust is the best vehicle for supporters to safe guard the long term future of the Club. Furthermore, the more members the Trust has the more influence it can bring to bear.

It is my aim that all supporters become members of the Trust. All members should be encouraged to be active including standing to be Directors on the Board.

In this time of National Emergency it is difficult to ask people to engage with the Trust, particularly when personal hardships are unknown, however it is a time to ensure that when the pandemic is under control we are best placed to help to get BWFC back on track.

I consider the trust the only true vehicle available to the ordinary supporter to enable us to have a voice and influence. I wanted to help out in our hour of greatest need under/after our last ownership challenges.

Individually we are just customers, but collectively we must safeguard and represent the true stakeholders of our great club, the Supporters, who are the lifeblood of any football club.

The coming months will present huge challenges for all UK business, especially football clubs in the lower leagues.

BWFCST has never been more important than in the coming months and I would encourage all supporters to become members and help the trust in any way possible.

I feel really privileged to sit on the Board of BWFCST, having signed up to be a member on that evening in January 2016 when more than 1000 of us came together in the Platinum Suite with a shared concern about our club.

I’m just a regular fan. BWFC became part of who I am back in December 1977 when my Dad took his then 10 year old daughter to her 1st game. He didn’t think I’d like it……..43 years later, I’m still a season ticket holder.

I joined the Trust because I care about the club’s future, and I care about our fans being a key part of that future. But now more than ever, we’re in uncharted territory.

Covid-19 is world changing. Football, our club, its staff, our supporters and the Bolton community will all feel its effects in ways none of us could have ever anticipated.

When the time is right, we have an opportunity to reconnect, grow our membership and collaborate with the club; so that we ALL become part of bringing both pride and success back to Bolton Wanderers.

For now, we all need to focus on staying safe and supporting those whose need is the greatest.

I don’t profess to have all the answers, but BWFC matters; and I am committed to doing the best I can for our club and our supporters.

I started following the Wanderers in the late 80’s early 90’s whilst at college, studying catering and hospitality management, where I was employed by a local company, and we got to work a lot of the sportsman’s dinners etc at Burnden park.

Hello all, my name is Will Jones, a 20 year old Sports Media student at the University of Chichester, originally from the Ribble Valley, a lifelong Bolton Wanderers fan and most importantly, a new member of the BWFCST board which I’m delighted to now officially be a part of.

I want to begin by wishing everyone well during these unprecedented times, I want to echo recent updates by advising all to listen to government advice, stay safe and save lives by staying at home.

Whilst everyone’s health is the present number one priority, I’d like to take this opportunity to express that becoming a BWFCST board member is something that I’m extremely excited about and I can’t wait to make a positive impact for and within the BWFC community once this period of uncertainty has passed.

This desire to have a vested interest in the future of our beloved football club has developed since the Whites unfortunately experienced off the field difficulties which had a significant impact on me as a supporter encountering a sense of helplessness and I was desperate to help in any way I could to allow it to survive.

Since which, I quickly became recognised as being somewhat of a representative and a voice of/for the fans in the mainstream media, through well-known fan-site the Lion Of Vienna Suite, on social media and as an active member at open meetings which lead me to want to help to make a difference on a regular basis via the Trust’s board, hence me being most grateful for my nominations and for being elected.

I’m excited to now be able to act primarily on behalf of the younger demographic who I feel have been overlooked to an extent in recent years and deserve to voice their concerns and have their opinions heard. I hope having a fresh, younger face on the board will not only provide stability for our longer standing supporters, but also inspire future generations to want to similarly make a difference through the influence, stature and solidarity of the Trust. I anticipate this will grow no end and subsequently allow us to continue to work closely with the club to create a sustainable future for years to come.

This, I assure you, will soon become a reality with the help of myself and the new board who are an excellent new team and, in each of our individual roles within the board structure (TBA), will provide you, the fans, with a brighter future for our football club.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting all members at the pending AGM.
