Bolton fan has no regrets after leaving job in Oz to watch 5-0 defeat

Bolton fan has no regrets after leaving job in Oz to watch 5-0 defeat
By Peter Smith (The Sentinel)


​BOLTON fan Ian Wagstaff insists he has no regrets after giving up a £38,500-a-year job in Australia to travel across the world for his side’s doomed FA Cup semi-final against Stoke.

The sheet metal worker handed in his resignation after being told he could not take time off from work in Brisbane to make it back for the Wembley showdown on Sunday.

The 50-year-old served four weeks’ notice and spent more than £1,000 to take his seat at the big match... only to see the Potters romp home to a 5-0 victory.

But Wagstaff, who has lived Down Under for 23 years, said: “I’m devastated, but I wouldn’t change anything – apart from the result.

“It was great to see the smaller clubs like Bolton and Stoke take pride of place on such a big occasion, even if we did have to see our team get played off the park.

“The atmosphere was electric and the Stoke fans were superb, I really hope they can go on and finish the job to lift the cup against Manchester City. Good luck to them.”

Wagstaff last went to watch Bolton in 1994 at Burnden Park and he had never even been to the Reebok Stadium, which opened in 1997 when he decided to make the 10,500-mile trip.

The father-of-three was determined to witness The Trotters reach their first FA Cup final since 1958, when they beat Manchester United 2-0 thanks to goals from Nat Lofthouse.

He is now planning to take in his first top-flight match before returning to his home and family in Australia in two months’ time to begin the hunt for a new job.

“I’ve been a Bolton fan all my life and watched them in every division apart from the Premier League,” said Wagstaff, who follows his club via the internet.

“When we reach the semi, I told my boss I wanted to go, but he said we were too busy. I told him I was going anyway.

“I just saw it as pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I could not miss it. I have no regrets at all.

“Still, I hope and dream that I don’t have to wait another 53 years to see Wanderers in an FA Cup final, I don’t think I will be around to see them then.”

Big-up to him, a true fan and supporter!

I know a lot of people who was prepared to do similar to see T&T in the 2006 World Cup in Germany as they not sure to see lightening striking the same place twice in their lifetime with that lot in the TTFF in charge of our football!

That's 3 goals in 3 games! Now I am seeing a sense of purpose in his play, running in the spaces, tackling, fighting for position etc...Glad for him.

Whey boy like yuh drinking tonite :beermug:

Yes good goal, I watched the first half. He played solid, still needs a little polishing up receiving the ball out of the air as the target man but that's not easy when defenders breathing down yuh back. His contributions were worth it as he played with effort, keep it up KJ!!!

Jones had a one on one and his touch let him down badly.  I actually see him hit a man a nice chest pass in traffic for a shooting chance.  I see him make a lot of good passes in the highlights.  Keep it up and work on the first touch.

Apart from KJ's god run and as seemingly ugly as stoke city's football is (reportedly) stoke city is playing very good football. As in close knit football. Red Antz kinda football. one for all kinda football and well KJ has only gotten better as he arose from his slump. Forget his goals but his ground play has improved by leaps and bounds. I see de man make a tru pass and well. Turning into a real class act KJ is becoming. 2-0 Stoke city up and now it is left to be seen if Assenal can come back from this beatout dey gettin.

Go stoke city.

Ah didnt realize before and maybe is because I did miss de bacaanal Bakes talking bout whey KJ dis somebody but trust meh KJ dont get no love and as a result.. Stoke City doh get no love. Imagine Stoke Pong up a big club like asernal in dey head yesterday and de thread cya even see a lil congratulatory effort from us? Are we so upset with KJ dat most times is only a few members can take de time to say well done? And let de man come and doh play wid heart for TNT yuh go see how much KJ attention go be moving around. Everybody have who dey does support but Sunderland thread does get more love and we dont have no native sons their anymore. Well i am a waggonist who supports all RWB players. Even Stern John. So I say Long live King John and I sincerely hope that I will be saying the same about KJ in time to come.
