Tommy Lawton was ace. My grandad loved him. He come to Everton to replace the greatest of them all, who was also his idol....although he would he been all players idol tbh. Think his grandad

Not all those born in Bolton and played for the club were a success. After selling Franny Lee to City for 60K we replaced him with Bolton lad Terry Wharton, signed from Wolves for 70K.

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.
