25 years since taking the reins at Macron Stadium, Bolton academy products have played for England, been responsible for the club becoming Champions of Europe 4 times, and winning the club's first-ever and a further 9 Premier League titles.
Heading into 2029, Bolton Wanderers' defensive approach was working nicely as they sat just outside the playoffs and into the fourth round of the FA Cup having knocked out a Premier League side.
The final season at the University of Bolton Stadium - formerly the Reebok Stadium and Macron Stadium - saw Bolton Wanderers competing in the SkyBet Championship for the seventh successive season. That's because the club is set to move to the brand new Eddie Davies Arena for the 2029/30 campaign.
Bolton Wanderers' young prospects were starting to respond to the faith we'd shown by throwing them into the first-team, in most cases extremely prematurely when they were still only considered to be playing at National League level.
The key focus of this FM21 save is to focus on homegrown academy products, or Trotters Talents. So with that in mind, it's pleasing to now have 12 academy products in the Bolton Wanderers first-team squad heading into the 2027/28 campsign.
