Bolton Wanderers Football Club are an English professional football club based in Bolton. Bolton Wanderers currently play in the championship league .Their latest match was however quite successful as they managed to draw against Wigan Athletics who are at the 5th place in the table. Although they are a good team we missed the days from JJ and Nat Lofthouse.

Bolton Wanderers colours are white shirts with navy red trims, worn with navy shorts and white and a red trimmed shirt. The away kit is a red jersey with blue trim worn with red shorts and red and blue hoop socks. The badge of the club has the clubs initials in the shape of a football. The red rose of Lancashire was there as well but on the 125th anniversary of the club it has been replaced by a red and blue ribbon.

The club was originally called Christ Church Football Club back in 1874 when it was first formed. The current name of the club was changed in 1877. Bolton Fc was successful in the past as they have won the title in the first division 3 times and in the 1920s they won the FA Cup 3 times as well!

The club qualified for The UEFA Cup twice reaching the last 32 in 2005-2006 and the last 16 in 2007-2008. The club played at Burnden Park for more than 100 years and from 1997 the club played at Reebok Stadium. The club was founded by Reverend Thomas Ogden, Tom Rawthorn was the first manager at BWFC and has a better success rate than the current manager Dougie Freedman.
