A BOLTON Wanderers super-fan enjoyed a special day out at the Reebok Stadium.

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.”
