Roy Greaves is the new chairman of the Bolton Wanderers Former Players Association.

The Wanderers legend has taken over from fellow Wanderers legend Syd Farrimond who has stepped down from the role.

The BWFPA raises money for charity with two major functions a year – a golf day and a sportsman's dinner – as well as being a social organisation for former Wanderers players.

Greaves, aged 69, has been a committee member for several years and was voted in as chairman by a unanimous show of hands of Association members.

Born in Farnworth, he made 495 appearances for Wanderers between 1965 and 1980, scoring 66 goals.

He then went to America where he played for Seattle Sounders, making 84 appearances before returning to England where he finished his career in 1983 after a season with Rochdale.

Farrimond received the thanks of the Association for his long-service on its committee which he performed alongside being involved with Bolton Wanderers Supporters Association for a number of years.

The BWFPA's annual sportsman's dinner will be held on October 14 at Dobbies Sports and Social Club.

A more recent Wanderers legend, Kevin Davies, will be the guest speaker and he will hold a question-and-answer session on the night.

There are tickets available for the event and they are expected to be in demand. To purchase them or for further details email and leave a telephone number and address.

Association members recently took part in a charity golf day organised by Bolton Golf Club in aid of Cancer Research in memory of former Wanderers striker Garry Jones who died recently.
