Dean Holdsworth resigns from Bolton


Dean Holdsworth has resigned as a director of all group companies of Bolton.

Holdworth's resignation comes nine days after his company Sports Shield BWFC Ltd were liquidated.

Sports Shield, along with chairman Ken Anderson's Inner Circle Investments, took over Bolton in March 2016.

A winding-up petition was lodged against Sports Shield by BluMarble Ltd in relation to an unpaid £5m loan.

The loan, which is thought to be closer to £7m because of accumulated interest, was secured against assets of the club.

Prior to the takeover, Bolton sold a car park close to their Macron Stadium home as well as their training ground at Euxton in order to avoid administration.
