First teamers join in the ghoulish fun at BWFC Juniors' Halloween Party

Nine Wanderers first teamers, along with manager Phil Parkinson, were in attendance at BWFC Juniors' Halloween Party on Thursday evening.

Held in the Lion of Vienna Suite at Macron Stadium, over 250 young supporters and their families packed into the room for a night of Halloween themed fun and games.

With special dances and prizes to be won for the best fancy dress costumes, the youngsters were also given the opportunity to meet some of their Bolton Wanderers heroes with a group of first team players made up of Gary Madine, Ben Alnwick, Adam Armstrong, David Wheater, Darren Pratley, Filipe Morais, Josh Cullen, Reece Burke and Andrew Taylor joining in the fun and a number even bringing their own families along.

After a Q&A session following their arrival, the players then joined in a number of party games including Mummy Wrapping and Apple Bobbing before taking their seats for a signing session, while manager Parkinson was also in attendance to meet supporters.

Speaking following the event, skipper Darren Pratley said, "It's been a really fun night coming down here to the party and I think all of the kids - and their families - really enjoyed it, alongside us all too.

"There's nothing better than putting smiles on people's faces and hopefully we did that tonight. The kids and some of their parents made a real effort with their costumes too and that was great to see.

"I've done a number of these events down the years, but this was without doubt one of the best turnouts and it was a great evening for everybody."
