Annual Service of Remembrance details confirmed

Confirmation of information ahead of the club's annual remembrance service held at Macron Stadium

Bolton Wanderers' annual Service of Remembrance will take place at Macron Stadium on Tuesday 23 May, starting at the Nat Lofthouse statue at 6.30pm.

From here, a new plaque will be unveiled and dedicated that has inscribed upon it those key moments that have shaped our history and the story of the football club. 

The events and people named on the plaque have been chosen from fans’ suggestions through The Bolton News. It includes the first goal ever scored in Football League history by Kenny Davenport on September 8, 1888 at 3.47pm when Bolton Wanderers played Derby County. 

Following the dedication of the plaque, the service will then continue in the Platinum Suite.

Later on, names of the 33 from the Burnden Disaster will be read out in an act of remembrance along with the names of loved ones that have been inscribed in the Memorial Book or engraved on a Memorial Stone during the past twelve months.

All the names of loved ones to be remembered from previous years will be displayed on the big screen.

Within the service, people will be invited to come forward and light candles in memory of their loved ones, while music for the evening will again be provided by musicians from the band of the 103 Regiment Royal Artillery.

There are no tickets required and entrance is free, while the evening will conclude with light refreshments.
