Press Release: July 21 Proclaimed “Bolton Wanderers Day” in Caledon!

 CALEDON, July 7, 2010 – Caledon Town Council has proclaimed July 21, 2010 “Bolton Wanderers Day” in Caledon! Inspired by a letter to the editor by local resident Hal Siemens, a founder and past president of the club, the proclamation recognizes Bolton Wanderers Soccer Club’s (BWSC) thirty plus years of success and its ties to one of the founding members of the English Football League, four-time FA Cup Champions Bolton Wanderers Football Club (BWFC).

In the past year, the association between the amateur and pro club has grown significantly.   BWSC has now fully aligned its development programs with BWFC International Academy.  Coaches from the U.K. club are making a return visit to conduct development camps for players and coaches July 19 – 23 at Edelweiss Park in Bolton.   And, BWSC’s new centre of operations at 561 Glasgow Road in Bolton now proudly sports the moniker, “Wanderers House.”

Mr. Siemens’ note to a local newspaper quickly found Bolton Regional Councilor, Annette Groves and Area Councilor, Doug Beffort behind the call for “Wanderers’ Day”.   And, momentum built from there.  “The executive, the coaches, the referees, and parents have taken this club with only 40 players in its first year to over 3,100 register local players in different leagues and from the age of 3 to 74. That to me is an unheralded phenomenal success story”, wrote Siemens, “We would probably be the first town in Ontario to celebrate an achievement like this…”

The proclamation which was unanimously passed by Caledon Council also commemorates a visit by the Bolton Wanderers FC to Canada to play in the annual Carlsberg Cup against Toronto FC July 21.  Kick-off for this international “friendly” is 7:30 at BMO Field in Toronto.  It promises to have a very large contingent of local Wanderers on hand to cheer the “Whites” Wanderers as well the “Reds.”
