Legend - The Life of Roy 'Chopper' Hartle

Legend: The Life of Roy 'Chopper' Hartle by John Gradwell.

Read the story of one of the greatest stalwarts of Bolton Wanderers Football Club, and one of the toughest characters ever to play league football.

A man who played 499 times for his adopted home town team.

A man who was a vital part of the side which lifted Bolton’s last major trophy.

A man rated possibly the best right back never to play for England.

And a man who coached the manager who would go on to steer his team to World Cup Final victory.

Written by a lifelong Bolton fan, John Gradwell, the book is available on Amazon, and from bookshops, including Waterstones in Bolton and the BWFC club shop.

Legend is now available as a paperback at £10.66 or on Kindle at £7.19 from Amazon
