15 September 2017

As we head into the weekend, it's time to recap those who finished 15th-11th in the Best ever BWFC players to play at Reebok/Macron Stadium.

15th. Per Frandsen

The Danish midfielder was part of the Bolton side that earned promotion back to the Premier League in the 1996-97 season. A man who scored 19 goals and appeared over 120 times for the club scored one of the best goals in the history of the Reebok/Macron Stadium, finding the net from 30-yards against Middlesbrough in 2003. 

 14th. Ricardo Gardner

The Jamaican arrived at Bolton in 1998 completing a 14-year spell at the club after leaving in 2012. Bibi featured over 340 times scoring 21 goals and his enigmatic style made him a massive favourite amongst the fans.

13th. David Wheater

Still, a part of the Bolton side the defender arrived at BL6 in 2011 and was named the club’s Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season following last season’s promotion-winning campaign. The 30-year-old is very much a cult hero for his Sweet Caroline antics during the aforementioned dinner, however, his performances over the last six years earned him 13th place on the list.

12th. Gary Cahill

The current Chelsea defender joined Bolton on 30 January 2008 signing a three-and-a-half-year deal and would make his debut three days later in a 2-0 win over Reading. The 31-year-old is regarded as one of the club’s best defenders after making over 130 appearances and scoring 13 goals for Bolton Wanderers. 

11th. Gary Speed

The late, great Gary Speed was one of the best ever Premier League midfielders and the Reebok/Macron faithful were lucky enough to watch him grace the turf on a weekly basis. Having an eye for goal, Speed scored 14 times for Wanderers in over 100 appearances. We will never forget you, Speedo.
