Hes never been the same player since he signed his contract! Im sure his primary role is to defend, but gets caught out of position all the time. The Guy from Huddersfield last season, Jackson was prob a better, and cheaper option.

And Gordon, who had his best game of the season against Cheltenham, not been seen since. It’s a tough one DJ better going forward where as Gordon is a better defender

Yes.

He was in tears according to the BN- lost both his parents recently- not sure what the award was for though.

FORMER Wanderer Tony Kelly will get the guest of honour treatment at Shrewsbury this afternoon.

The 57-year-old will be presented with a gift before kick-off by the Bolton Wanderers Remembrance Group in recognition of his work for the club and in the Bolton community and will also be joined by several former Shrews and Bolton team-mates.

Among the Wanderers contingent will be Gary Henshaw, Mark Came, Neil Fisher, Michael Brown and John Thomas.

Kelly officially left Wanderers a few months ago after a lengthy spell on furlough, having held several different roles, including fans’ liaison officer and Under-23s assistant coach.

The change came at a time of great personal pain for Kelly, whose parents had both passed away in the previous 12 months.

After his previous role was made redundant, Kelly was offered an alternative post by the club which involved shorter hours. But he turned down the offer and accepted a redundancy package, subsequently taking a driving job, with the hope of returning to football in some capacity.

 

His departure was not officially acknowledged at Wanderers, leading to strong criticism from some fans who feel his contribution to the club and community deserved some form of official thanks.

His former Bolton team-mate, Gary Henshaw, has also voiced his disappointment at the treatment of Kelly via social media.

The Bolton Wanderers Remembrance Group Facebook page has been swamped with messages from supporters over the past few weeks, wishing ‘Zico’ well for the work he did on the club’s behalf.

The Liverpudlian represented Wanderers on hospital and hospice visits, funerals and also raised money for charity via walks.

He will be presented with an honour at Shrewsbury by BWRG president Steve Hague in front of the away end at the Montgomery Waters Meadow, where a sell-out contingent of Bolton supporters are due.

Jackson ain’t played a game this season…. Think John was better option. 

John hasnt played a game this season, a decent one!  The left side is our weakness.

He’s not had best of seasons I agree, but there’s a player in there, the 5 at back should suit him, expect him to improve over the rest of the season.

Took both my lads on their first away today and glad I did. Last min winner in front of the fans, a solid If not spectacular affair. In a premier Inn now in the middle of hillbilly land, they'll always remember it, 👍👍👍👍
