History
  Formed in 1874, Bolton Wanderers were Football League founder members in 1888 and winners of the first FA Cup final at Wembley in 1923. Further FA Cup glory followed in 1926 and 1929 and Wanderers were also riding high in the First Division with third-placed finishes recorded in 1921 and 1925. The legendary Nat Lofthouse provided the club with a fourth FA Cup final victory in 1958 with both goals in a famous 2-0 victory over Manchester United. After a steady decline, Bolton were playing Fourth Division football in 1987 but a spectacular revival saw them promoted to the FA Premier League for one season via the play-offs in 1995. Burnden Park celebrated its centenary in the same year but a move to the Reebok Stadium was just around the corner. Wanderers' impressive new home was soon hosting top-flight football again following the club's Division One title romp in 1997 and another promotion in the 2000/2001 campaign, after which they maintained their FA Premier League status.
