Subject: Bolton Wanderers legend Nat Lofthouse dies at 85

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/16/11 at 3:25 am

Bolton Wanderers and England legend Nat Lofthouse has died at the age of 85.

The striker, who scored 285 goals in more than 500 games for the Trotters between 1946 and 1960, died in his sleep at a nursing home in Bolton.

"He was a one-club man and our football club meant as much to him as he did to us," said chairman Phil Gartside.

Lofthouse OBE, who worked for Bolton in a number of roles after he hung up his boots, also scored 30 goals in 33 matches for England.

Those roles included chief coach, chief scout, caretaker and club president, with Lofthouse holding the last position until his death.
