25 Peter Nicholson
Position : Defender
Played : 1982-3
Appearances : 7
Goals : 0
Hot on the heels of Roy Greaves came his former Bolton team-mate. A veteran of 32 he had made over 300 appearances for the Wanderers in a variety of positions but mainly at right back. After receiving a free transfer in 1982 he had been playing in the West Lancashire League with Lytham St Annes but fancied another crack at League football.
We played him at centre half. To be fair he wasn't as abject as Greaves but didn't do anything to earn a full contrct either and soon returned to the seaside although he made another brief comeback for Third Division Carlisle United the following season.
Peter is now a matchday host at Bolton and also takes part in charity events with other ex-pros.
