Bolton Wanderers have announced that the club’s new third shirts for the upcoming 2015/16 season will have the names of the 33 individuals who died in the Burden Disaster. 2016 marks the 70th anniversary of the Burnden stadium disaster, and “09-03-1946”, the date of the tragic event, will be featured on the reverse of the shirt with the Lancashire rose.
Only 1,000 of these shirts will be available for purchase, with £10 from the sale of every third jersey being donated to a Bolton based charity to be chosen by Trotters supporters.
Bolton are currently in the bottom half of the Championship table, with 37 points from 33 games.
