Personalised Football Calendar - Bolton Wanderers
A Treat For Any Trotter!
Bolton Wanderers - originally founded under the name Christ Church FC - have spent more time competing in the top flight of British football than in any other division. Since 2001 they have become a regular fixture in the Premier League, and with their reputation of being a tough team to beat, they will certainly fight to stay at the top.
The colourful history of the Wanderers has helped us to produce a captivating Calendar Gift, which makes a great present for any fan of the Trotters. With reproduced newspaper coverage from the highs and lows of the past century included, our unique Personalised Bolton Calendar is a great way to keep track of forthcoming occasions whilst reminiscing over past Bolton events.
These A3 Calendar Gifts can start from any month and you will find a great range of reproduced newspaper reports included, which guide you through the history of Bolton.
Stories from the early years include ‘Bolton win the Cup against a keen defence’, which is the headline accompanying an article on the club’s maiden FA Cup win in the first ever final played at Wembley. The Calendar also features match reports on two further FA Cup victories in 1926 and 1953 respectively.
Other articles involve the sacking of two influential Bolton Wanderers managers – Bill Ridding and Ian Greaves - and an account of a classic match that took place between Bolton and Derby in 1937, which had to be abandoned after half an hour due to fog.
A particularly poignant piece of coverage is the description of the 1946 cup tie against Stoke. The teams came together in solidarity to complete the game, despite the tragic loss of thirty-eight lives when a wall of fans collapsed.
Emotions return to elation through the newspaper stories focused on the most recent promotion to the Premiership in 2001 and the moment when Bolton Wanderers reached the Carling Cup Final in 2004.
