Several famous faces were in attendance to cheer on Wanderers as they lifted the Papa Johns Trophy at Wembley.

Vernon Kay was given the honour of carrying out the trophy prior to kick-off along with Plymouth fan Josh Widdicombe, who carried the match ball.

Vernon is a proud Bolton supporter and made the most of the occasion, raising the trophy in front of the 34,000 Whites fans who made the journey to the capital for the game. Those in attendance made plenty of noise throughout, waving their flags with pride.

Paddy McGuinness also travelled to Wembley to watch the action. His last visit watching Bolton at the famous venue ended in defeat against Stoke in the FA Cup semi-final in 2011, and he was much happier this time around.

He wrote on his Twitter page: “Nigh on 36 years ago I was there for our loss against Bristol and our 5-0 battering from Stoke in 2011. This is why today is all the more sweeter! Massive congratulations.”

Chaser Jenny Ryan celebrated her birthday in style as Wanderers cruised to victory. She added: “Astonishing scenes at Wembley Stadium. Very different to the last time I was here as a Bolton fan.”

Kyle Dempsey, Dion Charles, Elias Kachunga and Gethin Jones were all on target as Ian Evatt’s men proved too much for Plymouth.

There were plenty of ex-players at the game including Kevin Davies, who captained the side on their last trip to Wembley.

Ivan Campo and Ivan Klasnic were also among the former favourites taking in the atmosphere. Before kick-off, Campo shared a simple message of support, saying: “Come on Bolton! Let’s go boys.”

Meanwhile, ex-Bolton manager Sam Allardyce watched the match from the Royal Box. Before the game, he said: “Hi Bolton Wanderers fans. I saw you all in your numbers yesterday when I arrived at the hotel just down the road.

“I have just spent the last 35 or 40 minutes trying to get into the stadium and being bombarded with selfies and all sorts. It’s great to see you all here to support the Wanderers and I hope you have a fantastic day.”

John McGinlay also got to witness the action up close, watching from the press box while carrying out his commentary duties alongside Jack Dearden.
