Neil Lennon - Roy Hartle a one-off

Manager pays tribute to club legend Roy Hartle

Neil Lennon has paid tribute to Roy Hartle, the club legend who passed away on Wednesday evening.

“I never got to meet Roy unfortunately, but I am certainly aware of his contributions to this football club,” the manager said.

“First and foremost I’d like to pass our condolences to his family on behalf of the players and staff at Bolton Wanderers. 

“The word 'legend' gets bandied about quite often these days, but I think it is very fitting for Roy. For someone to spend all of their career at one club and play nearly 500 games is very rare these days.

“His contributions to the club were no doubt huge and I’m sure he’ll be missed.”
