Bolton Wanderers saddened to announce the passing of former player Garry Jones
Bolton Wanderers are deeply saddened to announce the passing of former player Garry Jones, aged 65.
Jones made a total of 247 appearances for the club scoring 55 goals between 1968 and 1978.
His most notable moment in a Bolton shirt came in October 1971, when he hit the headlines after netting a hat-trick in a 3-0 League Cup victory over Manchester City in front of over 42,000 at Burnden Park.
Jones also played a key role in helping Bolton to the Third Division championship in the 1972/73 season and was also part of the side that narrowly missed out on promotion to Division One during the 1975/76 campaign.
The thoughts and condolences of everyone at Bolton Wanderers are with Garry’s family and friends at this difficult time.
