It's Happening Again! Bolton Wanderers Fail to Pay Promotion Bonuses

Groundhog Day all over again

Just when you thought you were out, Bolton Wanderers manage to pull you right back in.

With our two feet still firmly in embargo country, and with manager Phil Parkinson currently shopping for free transfers and loans, the last thing you think we'd need would be more financial shenanigans at the club.

Well that's what we've got.

According to the BEN, the club has failed to pay promised and contractually obliged promotion bonuses to the playing staff.

The delay has also put the brakes on Jamie Proctor's move to Rotherham United, with the player - quite rightly - hanging on for what he is owed by the club.

The BEN article states that Wanderers have told those affected that the matter will be sorted by Monday, but it makes you wonder whether the problems with cashflow are the start of something bigger, or a minor hiccup. Let's hope it's the latter.
