Brentford fans who were left out-of-pocket after last season's Bolton Wanderers fixtue was cancelled are to be given compensation.

Wanderers will settle the debt with hundred of Bees supproters who had bought tickets and paid for travel to the University of Bolton Stadium last April.

The final game of the season was cancelled with less than 24 hours notice after players went on strike over unpaid wages.

Cancellation of the fixture with less than 24 hours notice resulted in a misconduct charge from the EFL and a 1-0 walkover win for Brentford  

Richmond and Twickenham Times:

Brentford's Chief Executive Jon Varney said: “This was a very unfortunate situation that we found ourselves in the middle of and I am pleased it has now been resolved.

"I am sorry it has taken so long but we had to wait for the disciplinary process to be concluded, then the appeal, before we could be certain as to what our fans would receive. I am grateful to our supporters for their patience.

“We would like to thank the EFL and Bolton for their communication during the process. While it has not been possible to make everything public, due to the ongoing process, we have been kept fully up to date.

"We wish the new owners at Bolton all the best for the future, everyone at Brentford had the deepest sympathy for the Bolton players and staff for the situation they found themselves in.

“I know from speaking to our football staff that the players always appreciate the following we get away from home.

"It gives everyone of us involved in the Club a great boost to see so many Brentford fans at away grounds. I am very pleased that we have now refunded this money and we can draw a line under the event and move on to the final stages of this season.”
