PFA called in to mediate as Bolton pay row continues

THE Professional Footballer’s Association are acting as mediators in an effort to solve Wanderers’ pay dispute as quickly as possible.
The players’ union say they are working alongside the EFL to negotiate with Bolton owner Ken Anderson and his board advisor Paul Aldridge over unpaid bonuses and, in the case of goalkeeper Ben Amos, his June salary.
The internal clash between staff and ownership forced drastic action at the weekend, when players refused to play in a friendly at St Mirren in protest.

The Bolton News understands the money is still outstanding but that there is no threat to this evening’s game at Atherton Colls, which kicks-off at the Kensite Stadium at 7.45pm.
As the PFA looked into the case yesterday it was business as usual at Lostock, with the players put through a full training session in good spirits with Phil Parkinson and his coaching staff.
A youthful Wanderers XI is expected to feature this evening – but the fact the game is going ahead as planned comes as good news to the Northern Premier One club, who had been concerned at the weekend’s events.
“It’s a fantastic start for our season and the game probably gives us the funding for the first few months,” said Colls chairman Paul Gregory. “We have struck up a fantastic relationship with Wanderers and 90 per cent of the committee are Bolton fans who follow them everywhere.
“We’ve also established a great link with Wanderers Ladies which was never really about funding but more about the prestige of having the team play here. And it has worked out well for both of us. We’re looking forward to a great game.”

The Wanderers Supporters Trust has also confirmed they have requested a meeting with Ken Anderson to speak about concerns raised by its members over the pay dispute.
The cancelled St Mirren game will also be among the topics on discussion at the AGM meeting on July 18. Members can register for tickets by emailing tickets@bwfcst.co.uk.

So Anderson still hasn't paid the players..He didn't meet the June deadline for payment and then didn't pay them on Friday as he said he would.
This will fester until Anderson pays the players.The main problem being the players won't be giving 100% effort.

He could well have paid the money in on Friday as it takes three working days to clear to their accounts.

Players not giving their best to any club they play for is unforgiveable and the fans will get on their backs soon enough.

I think the title of the article is misleading as it says "PFA called in" and then goes on to say "the PFA are acting as mediators" so despite the inference, there's no indication as to when they got involved. Could easily have been from the outset.

Reading Iles tweets it would seem to me that the players had contacted the PFA seeking advice about their concerns but things didn't go much further than that, with the players taking the decision to call the strike - hence why the PFA only appeared on the scene yesterday to mediate following from the players unofficial strike.
