Bolton began life back in 1874 as a church side - the Christ Church Sunday School - but broke away three years later when the vicar started to get antsy about them using church premises. And when the Football League was formed in 1888 they were one of the founder members. Bolton's history has not always been a successful one - with relegation to Division Four in 1987 counting as the low point in a poor spell that only ended about ten years ago. But they are finally finding their feet again and this will be their third consecutive season in the Premiership. Fast Fact:Bolton's all time leading goalscorer is Nat Lofthouse who scored 285 goals in 503 games.

A visit to Bolton Old Links provides a memorable experience - Eighteen uniquely challenging holes, superb conditioning, panoramic views, a traditional clubhouse, real ale and high quality catering.

Bolton Old Links Golf Club welcomes visitors both informally to play a round with a friend, or as part of a more organised group.
Blackburn Rovers are a club that have known all about football's high and lows since their foundation in 1875. They quickly emerged as one of England's most powerful clubs and by 1928 Rovers had won the league championship twice and the FA Cup on six occasions. For the next sixty years, however, the trophy cabinet was bare and they remained outside of the top-flight - sinking to Division Three in 1971 - between 1966 and 1993. Not that promotion to the Premiership, via the play-offs, would herald an end to the club's topsy-turvy nature, though. Fast Fact :Blackburn won the Premiership in 1994 under Kenny Dalglish despite losing their last game of the season at Anfield.

The four stands are of roughly the same height and there is an electric scoreboard above the Adidas Stand, on one side of the stadium. The stadium is not totally enclosed , all corners being open.
