WANDERERS have confirmed that charges which have appeared on Companies House over the last seven days are NOT an example of additional debt piled on to the club.

As The Bolton News revealed this morning, security taken out on club assets from both the Fildraw Trust and David Rubin and Partners was part of the deal to bring Wanderers out of administration last August.

The club’s owners, Football Ventures, have now released a short statement to underline their position.

It read: “Regarding the recent registration of charges filed at Companies House, Football Ventures (Whites) Limited wishes to confirm that these relate solely to arrangements agreed during the administration process and not to any new agreements or grant of additional security,” the statement read.

“The transaction to take the Club and Hotel out of administration was extremely complex and the legal formalities relating to the registration of certain aspects has taken time to complete.”

David Rubin and Partners, who were appointed as administrators in May last year, have also confirmed to The Bolton News that the structured payment of fees has now been agreed and that Football Ventures are up to date with what they owe.
