The Trotters were relegated from the Championship last season

Name: Bolton Wanderers Football Club
Founded: 1877
Stadium: The Macron Stadium
Capacity: 28,723
Manager: Position vacant
Last Season: 24th in the Championship (Relegated)

Following relegation from the Championship last season, Bolton Wanderers will find themselves at the third level of English football for the first time in 23 years this coming campaign.

The Trotters, who are currently without a manager after Neil Lennon’s departure by mutual consent in March, will be hoping for an immediate return to the Championship next term.

Wanderers will be hoping to swiftly erase any memories of their previous campaign, which was overshadowed by financial turmoil, along with issues both on and off the pitch, which contributed to their drop into League One.

Bolton will be aiming for a short stay in a league that they have not graced for two decades, and a promotion challenge will be at the forefront of the club’s short-term aim in the near future.

After a prolonged spell of four-years in the second-tier, and over a decade in the Premier League before that, Bolton will be amongst some of the bigger sides in the division come the 6th August.

The Club’s owners, Sports Shield consortium, are currently in the process of appointing a new manager following Lennon’s departure 12 weeks ago.

Keeping hold of some of their prized assets will be a challenge for Wanderers, with a number of sides taking a look at some of their young talent.

The Cod Army will make the journey to the Macron Stadium for the very first time next season, as will Bolton when they visit the Fylde Coast.
