Bolton Wanderers FC formed in 1874 and the club became a founder member of the football league. The Trotters reached the FA Cup final for the first time in 1894. Although they lost the final on this occasion and again in 1904, Bolton won the competition three times in the 1920s. The club began to enjoy more consistency in league competition midway through the following decade. In fact, Bolton enjoyed an unbroken spell in the top flight for almost thirty years. This was a golden era for the club and Bolton’s success was headed by Nat Lofthouse in the 1950s. Lofthouse was a terrific goal scorer for both club and country.

Although Bolton’s form dwindled in the final quarter of the twentieth century, the team reached the Premiership in 1995. Qualification for European competition followed in the new millennium.
