Bolton Wanderers Football Club have dropped plans to be sponsored by pay-day loan company QuickQuid after fans protested against the move.

The club said it had taken the decision after "feedback" from fans and discussions with "local and national politicians".

A petition against the Championship club's two-year sponsorship deal received almost 4,500 signatures.

The club will now be sponsored by Bolton-based energy company FibrLec.

The team's kit will carry its logo along with the Bolton University logo, as the firm grew from the university.

In a statement, the club said: "Whilst we anticipated some negative responses from the initial agreement, we underestimated the adverse reaction to the sector of business in which the sponsor operated".

A protest attended by fans and Bolton West MP Julie Hilling was held outside Bolton Town Hall after the QuickQuid deal was announced.

The MP said the pay-day loan industry "exploits vulnerable people who need ready money".

'Bolton family'

Earlier this month the industry was criticised by regulator the Office of Fair Trading for "widespread irresponsible lending" and charity Citizens Advice for being "out of control".

The Consumer Finance Association, which represents lenders including QuickQuid, said pay-day loan firms were a "positive choice for people from all walks of life".

Leader of Bolton Council Cliff Morris said he was "pleased with the decision to reconsider" the deal.

He said: "We have been in discussion with the club since last week's announcement to raise our concerns and those of the community. Their response clearly shows the value the club places on the support of their fans and the wider Bolton family."

Bolton Wanderers chairman Phil Gartside said: "We have worked for years to build trust and participation with the community through our Community Trust, education programmes, and other initiatives that are currently underway in partnership with local and national government.

"We don't want our commercial relationships to come between us and our community, and neither does QuickQuid."


Fair play to Bolton fans and the club for standing up to this as it doesn't send the right sort of message basically being sponsored by a legalised loan shark in times where people are struggling.

I imagine they have had to take a worse deal financially but it's about time clubs listened to fans and didn't just walk all over them.

Bolton's Stuart Holden has suffered another serious knee injury after scans revealed he tore a cruciate ligament in the United States' Gold Cup final win.

Holden, 27, was forced off in Sunday's 1-0 victory against Panama, having been affected by knee problems for more than two years.

Medical tests on Monday then showed the damage to the midfielder's right knee.

"I will rise again! Big love and thanks to all," Holden, who recently agreed a new contract with Bolton, tweeted.

Speaking immediately after the match at Chicago's Soldier Field, head coach Jurgen Klinsmann expressed his fears after Holden had to be substituted in the first half.

"We are very concerned about Stuart's situation," he told ussoccer.com.

"It looks like a very serious injury, but I'm not a doctor and I can't confirm it.

"He'll have all the tests done. Stu is a player that when something happens, he knows when something happens. Hopefully it's not as bad, but it's not looking good right now."

Holden's knee injury woes began in March 2011 when he was hurt in a Premier League match against Manchester United.

After a six-month absence, he returned to action in a League Cup tie at Aston Villa, but then required further surgery that would keep him sidelined for another 16 months.

Holden made his comeback in January, making four appearances for Bolton last season and a further four during a loan spell at Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Wanderers begin the 2013-14 season at Burnley on Saturday.


Poor guy :(

That's a real shame for the lad. He's a good player, think Bolton could well have stayed up if he'd not missed that season.

Bolton have confirmed Stuart Holden tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee playing for the United States.

Holden, 27, underwent scans on the injury he picked up in the first half of his national side's victory over Panama in the Gold Cup final on Sunday evening.

Those scans have subsequently revealed the midfielder will miss a considerable period of time again after lengthy spells out with knee problems in 2011 and 2012.

"We've got the scans and the results will be analysed by our specialists," head of sports performance Mark Leather told Bolton's official website.

"We can then put an action plan in place over the next week to 10 days when the initial swelling reduces."

Holden's first serious knee injury with the Trotters came in March 2011 following a tackle from Manchester United's Jonny Evans.

He made his comeback in September of that year against Aston Villa but had to have a follow-up operation and would not appear in a Bolton shirt again until January 2013.

Holden returned to the international stage in May after a two-year absence and United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann told the US Soccer website: "We are absolutely devastated for Stuart.

"He was fully prepared to head back to Bolton and challenge for a starting spot. Now he will have our full support as he goes down this road again and we will be with him every step of the way."

Speaking on Twitter, Holden himself added: "I will rise again! Big love and thanks to all."


When he got that first injury it was a real shame for him as he'd just started to shine in a half decent Bolton side although I think the injury from Jonny Evans was a broken leg nothing to do with his knee.

Bolton Wanderers have signed the midfielder Jay Spearing from Liverpool for an undisclosed fee. The 24-year-old won the club's player of the year award in 2012-13 while he was on a season's loan from Liverpool.

Spearing, who came through Liverpool's academy and made 55 appearances for the club, has agreed a four-year contract at the Reebok Stadium.

"Jay was my top target," Bolton's manager Dougie Freedman told BBC North West Tonight. "He's got the potential to be a very, very good player.

"What I like about him is that he comes in every day with the attitude to get better. At my last club [Crystal Palace] that's what it was all about – the younger players coming through the system and making sure they apply themselves in the right way."

Bolton Wanderers chairman Phil Gartside has played down the significance of the £163.8m debt recently announced by the Championship club.

More than £150m of the figure published by parent company Burnden Leisure in December is owed to owner Eddie Davies.

Gartside said: "We owe the bank £8m and there will be many a club who will be envious of having an £8m overdraft.

"Technically it is a debt, but it's not in the sense of a bank debt. It doesn't cause me any sleepless nights."

Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester, Gartside continued: "It is an amount of money that a benefactor has lent to us. It's not bank debt.

"If some other foreign owner does that sort of thing, it would never get a mention. Because it's Eddie Davies and because it's Bolton Wanderers, it gets called debt."

Wanderers posted a loss of more than £50m for the financial year ending June 2013, taking into account Bolton's first season back in the second tier after 11 years in the Premier League, while turnover dropped by £30m.

Gartside, who reiterated that Davies has no plans to end his involvement with the club, also gave manager Dougie Freedman his backing following a difficult first half of the season.

Bolton are 18th in the Championship with 28 points from 25 games, 11 points from a play-off spot and seven above the relegation zone.

"Dougie's had a tough job since he came here," said Gartside.

"Financial Fair Play rules have made it more difficult to be able to give him funds to go and buy players. He's comfortable with that.

"He's changed our training, the structure of the training ground and he's very keen to look at youth. He's somebody who, in the past, has developed young players.

"From my point of view, I enjoy working with him and he's doing a good job. He's a young British manager and we haven't got enough of those. In football, we've got to be responsible for developing those sorts of things."


Well it is debt until Davies converts it to capital as the club do owe that money to someone even if he never intends to ask them to pay it back if he did decide he wanted it back he could basically bankrupt the club.

I know Chelsea have similar debts to Roman but he paid off a load of that recently because it's pointless a company he owns owes him money at 0% interest

Bolton Wanderers have released four senior players, including captain Zat Knight and winger Chris Eagles.

Full-back Tyrone Mears and goalkeeper Jay Lynch are also leaving.

The Championship club have confirmed talks are ongoing with injured midfielder Stuart Holden, forward Andre Moritz and keeper Arran Lee-Barrett.

Centre-back Knight, 34, who spent five years with Wanderers, was appointed skipper at the start of the season after the departure of Kevin Davies.

But he only started 24 of Bolton's 46 league games in the 2013-14 campaign, in which Dougie Freedman's side finished 14th in the table.

Former Manchester United youngster Eagles had three seasons at the club, scoring 19 goals in 106 games for Wanderers.

USA international Holden is currently recovering from a fourth serious knee injury. He has appeared just five times for Bolton in the last three seasons.

Bolton Wanderers players are yet to receive their wages for November, the club has confirmed.

A statement on the club’s website read: “Bolton Wanderers Football Club can today, Monday 30 November, confirm that the first-team playing squad are yet to receive their wages for the month of November. This is due to the ongoing situation surrounding the club’s ownership off the field.”

Commenting as part of the statement, Trevor Birch, who was recently appointed as adviser to the club’s board, said: “This is due to a short-term funding issue. We are working hard behind the scenes and hope to have this resolved in a quick and timely manner and I will be meeting the players tomorrow to update them.”

This development comes at a grim time for the club, who are bottom of the Championship, five points from safety, having failed to win any of their past 11 matches.

The club, £172.9m in debt, are up for sale with the owner, Eddie Davies, prepared to write off that figure in loans owed to him as part of any takeover.

A consortium led by the former Wanderers striker Dean Holdsworth is understood to be interested in buying the club whose chairman, Phil Gartside, is said to be seriously ill.
