Bolton born, never played for the club

Recommended Posts

There have been some great players born in Bolton and district (yes that includes Farnworth) who have never played for BWFC.

I'll start with one, you name the rest.

Here is mine:

 Tommy Lawton

Never played again

As we've drifted from greats, did Mike Pollitt ever play for us at junior level ?

He was on United's books at School.

Was Owen "headless chicken" Hargreaves from Bolton?

No his dad Colin was; from Farnworth. Was an apprentice with him at Billy Hares on Weston Street near Burnden Park. Colin was a big Bolton fan and was a good amateur footballer

My step daughter (sits with me at match) was in the same year as him at school in Deane, she found it really wierd the first time he played at Macron.  Unfortunately for her she failed to marry him.
