With many thanks to Matt for emailing this next one:

It’s from a Bolton based artist known as Johnny Boy. If you like Northern Soul then you will like this one. The track that Johnny Boy did was for Bolton Wanderers and featured some commentary from a local legend, who is sadly no longer with us.

Dave Higson

Matt tells the story »

“This song was recorded just after Bolton beat Man Utd at Old Trafford in 2001, not sure the reasons for the recording of this track, pretty sure it was never played at the Reebok and only a couple of cd’s released, luckily I’m a close friend of the artist and managed to get hold of one of the cd’s.

It’s extra special as it features Dave Higson who’s since passed away but is a Bolton Legend with his Video Camera Commentary of Bolton Wanderers Games. He was also a favourite on Skinner and Baddiel’s Fantasy Football TV Show”

Here’s the legendary Dave Higson in action on the aforementioned TV show:

If it wasn’t for YouTube things that this would be lost in time.

More articles about Dave can be found via the This is Bolton site and at The Bolton News.
