Bolton striker David Jack made history as the author of the first goal scored at London’s Wembley Stadium.

In 1987, Bolton Wanderers flew into the fourth division, but in eight years the team managed to rise to the elite. In 1995, under the leadership of coach Bruce Rioja, Bolton won the Reading finals in the playoff finals and advanced to the Premier League.

Rioch moved to London Arsenal in the offseason, and his first season in the Premier League Bolton began under the guidance of new coach Roy McFarland. For Christmas, Bolton confidently occupied the last line in the table, and on January 2, 1996, McFarland was fired. Colin Todd, MacFarland’s assistant, took his place. But time has already been lost. Although at Todd, Bolton took the 14th place in scoring points, but the team nonetheless dropped out of the first division with 29 points and the last place.

It is with his transition that Bolton’s greatest successes are associated. Bringing the club in 2001 in the Premier League and having at the same time a modest budget, “Big Sam” relied on the age players: Ivana Kampo, JJ Okochu and others.
