Bobby Oysten, aged six, was won a recent competition organised by Bolton’s Market Place Shopping Centre and Bolton Wanderers.
Before the home match against Nottingham Forest, he met his idols, defender Tim Ream and midfielder Chung-Yong Lee.
The youngster, Stratford Avenue, Smithills, led the team out on to the pitch at the Reebok Stadium for the match.
Rod Neasham, Market Place centre manager, said: “We’re thrilled that we could make a young boy’s dreams come true.
“We couldn’t have chosen a more suitable competition winner. Bobby is a true super-fan and he was over the moon to be chosen.”
