Nat Lofthouse OBE (27th August 1925 - 15th January 2011)

This site celebrates the life and career of one of English football's greatest and most legendary players, Nat Lofthouse OBE.

An England international, Lofthouse played his entire club career for his home town club, Bolton Wanderers, scoring 255 goals in 452 league appearances.

Capped 33 times by the Three Lions, Lofthouse picked up the nickname ‘the Lion of Vienna’ after his two goals against Austria and represented England in the 1954 World Cup.

Winning the FA Cup with Wanderers in 1958, Lofthouse is regarded as a Bolton club legend, with a statue dedicated to his achievements set to be unveiled ahead of the Queens Park Rangers game on Saturday 24th August, with proceedings starting at 10.30am with a number of former Wanderers players and Nat's family in attendance.
