Nat Lofthouse – Bolton Wanderers 1958


The Bolton Wanderers legend.

Nat Lofthouse, the Lion of Vienna.

“It’s the fact that he was a one-club man. That’s the thing more than anything else. It happened a lot in our day as it were, of course. People like Tom Finney and myself, people like that. But you always associate Nat with Bolton. That’s the two words that go together and the thing about Nat was, as well, that you don’t need to put his surname there, do you? You just say Nat.

“He was probably one of the best centre forwards England ever had, very aggressive and combative with great speed.

“‘He was everything a centre forward should be and was a great one-club man.”

– former Bolton Wanderers manager, Jimmy Armfield
