Sharon Brittan, the leading figure in the Football Ventures consortium, has finally given her first on-camera interview with the club’s website and we must say, we’re impressed.

The Manchester-born businesswoman led the way in the fight to get Bolton’s arduous takeover deal over the line and now the deal is finally done, the new owner has introduced herself to the Bolton fanbase in the perfect manner in an interview with the club’s media team.

Brittan’s interview gives us a sense of the type of owner she and her Football Ventures colleagues are going to be and from the sounds of things, it’s a far cry from the previous regime.

Brittan’s interview, which you can watch above, takes us through her feelings on completing the takeover after months of arduous negotiations, gives us a brief introduction to some of the key players in the consortium and explores her reasons for getting involved in Bolton Wanderers.

It’s been widely reported that Sharon Brittan and her Football Ventures colleagues have been warm and welcoming in their first few weeks as Bolton’s owners and this interview is a great advertisement of that for the club’s fans.

We have to say that we’re hugely impressed with what we’ve seen and heard so far. Hopefully, the optimism that Brittan and her team bring to the table can transfer into some positive results on the pitch.

After the doom and gloom of the previous ownership regime, as many people have said, Football Ventures could well prove to be the breath of fresh air that the club has needed for some time.

Given the horrendous time the club has been through in the last 12 months, it’s so uplifting to see such a buzz around the team and club again.

Whether or not the new ownership eventually takes Bolton back to the Premier League or just offers some much-needed stability, it’s good to know that the people at the top are honest, hard-working and have the future and fans of Bolton Wanderers very much at heart.
