Oxford Utd v BWFC

Tuesday 21st March 2017


The Bolton Wanderers Supporters Association (BWSA) is the OFFICIAL supporters group for Bolton Wanderers Football Club.

You can find out more about the history of the BWSA by clicking ‘About the BWSA’

The committee of the BWSA aim to bring members and non-members together in the form of meet the player evenings at the football stadium or other social events held at various venues in the local area.

With the recent formation of the BWFC Supporters Trust, the BWSA intend to continue to host social events throughout the year and, in line with our constitution, act in the interests of supporters of Bolton Wanderers Football Club.

If you want to meet fellow supporters, players, managers, backroom staff and people generally connected to the world of football in a relaxed and friendly environment then membership to the BWSA is money well spent.

There may be many opportunities to see your favourite player arriving at the stadium or training ground but not many opportunities to speak to them on a one-to-one basis.

BWFC 2 : 1 Northampton

After a fantastic start to our Grand Tour, it was time to take some home leave and welcome Matt Taylor, Greg Wylde and Keshi Anderson and the rest of their Northampton Town team mates to the Macron. The Doombar deliberations were particularly upbeat as the good news has flooded in this week. The return of three experienced players, Dorian Dervite, Darren Pratley and Jay Spearing has been like signing three new players. Jem Karacan coming on board for a month has given us additional depth to our depleted resources, while the settlement between Messrs Anderson and Holdsworth can only be good for Bolton Wanderers. The fans are buzzing, eagerly waiting for each match now.

Fortunately, Phil Parkinson could name an unchanged team and was able to include Jay Spearing on the bench. Any thoughts of another easy victory were soon dispelled as the Cobblers put up a resolute display in the first half and they edged in front in the second half when a superb cross from Matt Taylor was prodded home by Michael Smith. I knew we shouldn’t have given Matt Taylor such a good welcome. It was game on now as we finally roared into gear. Matt Taylor handled as we laid siege to their goal and ALF blasted the penalty home. Filipe Morais who had had a quiet game, turned out to be the hero as he fired home the winner. John-Joe O’Neill then had a goal disallowed for Northampton with virtually the last kick of the match. Our thanks go to the linesman for getting it right! Ben Alnwick tweeted afterwards that he wanted to hug the linesman. Well, get in the queue Ben with 14,000 Bolton fans.

Phew! We had to dig deep and battle to get the points today but we had the quality and the spirit to do it. There are going to be periods in the next nine cup ties when things are not going our way and it is at these times that it is important that we stick together like today and get behind the team. Nobody said it was going to be easy and I’m still in amazement that we have got ourselves in this promising position against all odds. The true Bolton spirit is coming out now, living up to the town motto ‘Supera Moras’, which means ‘Overcoming Difficulties’. Maybe it should be 'Supera Morais'?
