Bolton call off game against Doncaster Rovers due to player welfare concerns after having to use youth players in every match so far this campaign

  • Bolton had just three senior outfield players available for loss against Tranmere 
  • The club have taken the step of calling off Tuesday’s game due to their worries 
  • They are in administration and are awaiting completion of a takeover 

Bolton have postponed Tuesday’s fixture against Doncaster Rovers due to concerns over player welfare.

They have been using youth players in every match so far this season and had just three senior outfield players available for their 5-0 defeat against Tranmere on Saturday.

And now the club have made the step of calling off Tuesday’s clash due to their worries. 

Bolton have postponed Tuesday’s game against Doncaster due to concerns over player welfare

A statement from Bolton read: ‘It is with real regret and a deepening sense of frustration that we have been forced to postpone tomorrow’s fixture against Doncaster Rovers.

‘Whilst the threat of further EFL sanctions is obvious, nothing can be allowed to impact on the welfare of such a young group of players. With so many senior players injured or unavailable, the squad has performed heroically and deserves so much credit.

‘But after consultation with the club’s medical staff, it is obvious that to call on them for another match without an adequate break would be detrimental to both their welfare and development which cannot be allowed.

‘We were able to bring in reinforcements before the match against Coventry because the deal was so close to completion. 

‘Now, following recent events, the legal position of various parties has altered which means a delay in completion. In this situation, it is very difficult to attract available players to the club.

‘I will be discussing the implications with the EFL but in the meantime, I would call on all parties involved with the acquisition of the club and hotel to end this intolerable delay and secure once and for all the future of Bolton Wanderers.’

Bolton are in administration and waiting for a takeover by Football Ventures to be completed.

Their manager Phil Parkinson expressed his concerns at the weekend. ‘I’ve spoken many times in the past couple of weeks. Asking young players to go again is not right,’ he said.

‘We sent an email to the English Football League explaining about our concerns over the welfare of our young players playing these games in quick succession, but we were told we had to play the game.’
