Rest in Peace: Richard Oxtoby [1939-2020]

Bolton Wanderers were saddened to learn of the passing of our former player Richard Oxtoby.

The Chesterfield-born defender spent time on Wanderers’ books between 1955 and 1960 where he made a handful of appearances for the Trotters alongside stints with Tranmere Rovers and Runcorn.

Later in his career, Richard received an award from the FA to acknowledge his services to junior football in the Bolton area where he coached local youngsters until well into his 70s.

The thoughts of everybody at the club are with his wife, family and friends during this sad time.
