Forest Green request 'solidarity' as Wanderers fans descend on Bury clash

Forest Green Rovers have appealed to Wanderers fans to put local rivalry to one side if they visit the New Lawn on Saturday.

A number of Bolton supporters are planning to travel to Gloucestershire to watch the League Two club face Bury after an invite was extended by FGR chairman Dale Vince.

A bitter war of words broke out between Vince and Wanderers owner Ken Anderson following the apparent collapse of Christian Doidge’s transfer to the University of Bolton Stadium at the start of this month.

Vince produced cheeky T-shirts with the logo “No Ken Do” for disgruntled Bolton fans, which were sold online. The first run was sold out in just a couple of days and profits passed on to the Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust.

Bolton fans have also been promised a free pint for their efforts – and it is understood there has been a large take-up, with Phil Parkinson’s side not in action until Monday, January 21 against West Brom.

A large contingent of Shakers fans are also thought to be heading to the game, looking to see if Ryan Lowe’s side could go top of the table with victory.

Forest Green and the BWFCST issued a joint statement yesterday asking for those attending to do so respectfully.

“Forest Green Rovers are expecting a number of Bolton Wanderers supporters to attend the club’s upcoming fixture on January 19 at the New Lawn against Bury,” the statement read.

“That follows the collapse of Christian Doidge’s transfer from FGR to Bolton at the start of January.

“This led to a huge amount of warm wishes between Bolton’s fans and Dale Vince, who then invited them to our next home game, which happens to be against the club’s local rivals.

“This was a gesture of solidarity and sympathy with the Bolton fans, who will also be able to show their appreciation to Christian Doidge for his time at the club.

“Forest Green Rovers and Bolton Wanderers Supporters’ Trust ask that all fans attending the game use this as an opportunity to celebrate the football family and create a good atmosphere for all fans to enjoy the match.”

Vince says he will be pursuing legal action against Anderson for a breach of contract, alleging that Wanderers reneged on their agreement to pay for the 26-year-old striker on January 3.

“They can’t be allowed to get away with it,” he told BBC Radio Manchester last week. “He can’t be allowed to get away with it.

“I don’t hold this against the club, or the fans of the club, it’s the behaviour of one man who, as I have said in other interviews, gives football a bad name.

“A winding-up petition may be possible and if not, a simple pursuit through the High Court for breach of contract. Which legal pursuit we take will be decided in the next few days and doesn’t really matter.”

Anderson has disputed Vince's version of events, adding: "What I can say is that he knows what he agreed in August 2018 and I have made it clear that we are still prepared to make the first payment, as always agreed from the outset, being next week when we receive the EFL distribution monies.

"If this is not now acceptable, then so be it, but don't go blaming me for disappointing Christian as we have made it absolutely clear that he is welcome here.

"As regards the breach of contract claims, well that will be for the courts to determine, if it gets that far, as we intend to adhere to the agreement next week and if he rejects the payment, then as I said, it will be for the courts to determine which party is in breach of contract."

Red warning notice appeared yesterday (10 Feb 2020) on Companies House website for overdue accounts of Dale Vince's Ecotricity Group

You can, of course, be disqualified from being a company director if you don't comply with accounts filing regulations.

Doesn't happen to everyone, of course, but there are more disqualified directors than you might imagine. Check out the register here:

No thanks. I've got some paint drying.

I just had a quick look to get the scale of the numbers and found there were folk from Bolton on all of the first four pages of names beginning with A.

You have to get to page 8 of the A's before you get to Kenneth Anderson but it ain't our Ken. His disqualification was spent so he doesn't appear any longer.

Think the point Bob is making is that Vince was heralded as a hero by many for denouncing Anderson publicly as some sort of a company bandit, whilst it is now looking that he's possibly many times worse than KA ever was ever thought to be.

In fact the books have been gone through by the Administrator at Bolton and Anderson has yet to be called to account for anything so far, whilst Vince seems to be the one reluctant to publish his accounts, which is preventing them from being made open to scrutiny.

People in glasshouses perhaps?

I'm with Octopus. They're very good. Had a look at Vince's company, but didn't fancy it. I'd have paid almost double what I'm paying now.

This is the third time in the last six years that the Ecotricity Group accounts are late. The previous two weren't hugely late and this one isn't yet but it does look a bit like folk in glasshouses lobbing bricks. Anyway it also seems that Ecotricity parted company yesterday (10 February 2020) with Simon Crowfoot, one of its directors. Commercial director from the look of things.

I'm also not sure that the administrator would be entirely on a sure footing having a go at KA. I suspect KA's covered his tracks quite well and it might seem a bit rum for the administrator to accuse KA of excessive management fees when you look at the scale of the fees of the administrators and those of their appointees.

Still no sign of the Ecotricity Group accounts. When Dale Vince was losing his cool with KA last year, he might have been smarting from having just signed off some poor financial results for the second year running.

He keeps busy on Twitter and the media but no-one seems to be asking where are the audited accounts. I wonder if its going to be poor results for the third year running when they eventually appear.

Looks to me that Sharon and Emma went on a charm offensive with Mr Vince a short while ago and it may have worked.

"I'm not interested in making money. I would rather go down the tubes than sell out my principles."  Dale Vince told Talksport recently.


It didn't con/vince @Blue9844:

“I’m not interested in making money, bull if you want to know more about him ask the people who work for him..... you’ll be VERY surprised how angelic he is in the media and what an absolute w...er he really is.''


DV doesn't con/vince me either but I don't expect he'd have much trouble con/vincing gullible ST types.

If you are a taxpayer you might well be paying double the rate of tax Mr Vince seems to have been getting away with on the £millions he's been drawing from taxpayer-funded Ecotricity.

The Daily Telegraph were onto it five years ago. If they'd followed it up they might have found the next trick.

I very rarely read the Telegraph and only found the article when an alarm bell went off in the way that Vince, the BN and the media were reporting his dispute with Ken Anderson.

P.S. Sorry, I missed out the ST.

Here's a bit more from the Telegraph from the man who has no interest in money. Apparently he found Jeremy Corbyn 'so genuine', 'so real' and so 'inspirational' that he donated £15,000 to Corbyn's election campaign. I guess he's not a fan of John Mann, Louise Ellman, Tom Blenkinsop or Uncle Tom Cobley and all.

£15K is only about one tenth of the amount he committed to Ed Milliband but maybe times are getting harder for Mr Vince. So hard that his audited accounts are now 17 days overdue.
