    Phil Parkinson hails more stable future for Bolton Wanderers

    Joe Jones

    Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson has claimed that automatic promotion to the Championship marks the transition to a more stable future for his side.

    The Trotters returned to the second tier with a 3-0 victory over Peterborough United at the Macron Stadium on Sunday, just one season after they were relegated to League One for the first time in 23 years.

    "I'm absolutely delighted. To perform as well as we did on a big day like today, I'm so proud of the boys," Parkinson told Sky Sports News. "It means a lot to so many people in the club and the club's had some tough times over the last few years.

    "This is a great day for us and this has got to be the start of the club building back and putting the platform in place to take us forward again. It's a great day for us.

    "I think the spirit of the lads, when we went away in pre-season we kind of detected the lads had galvanised together through the adversity of last year.

    "They've pulled together all year and they're a really good group to work with. We've pulled together and I'm just so proud of every one today to get the job done.

    "We've had lots of things thrown as us through the year and we've just kept our heads down to concentrate on what we've had to do week in week out and we've got our rewards in the end.

    "The club's in a good position now to go forward and we've had some troubled times but what a day for everyone at Bolton today.

    "Enormous credit to Ken Anderson, the chairman, for what he's done because this was a big job to take on for him as well as myself and the staff and he's handled the club really well.

    "I think this has got to be the start of something that builds the club back up again."
