Biography of Tony Bolton



HERITAGE NO : 928
Tony Bolton by Adrian Lawrenson

Tony is a classic example of a genre that has gone from the game now. The typically reliable ‘A’ team prop forward who stayed at the club for five or more years and was always available to fill the bench when called into action for the seniors. Tony’s debut was after a punishing Floodlit Cup final defeat at Craven Park against a powerful Hull KR team. The next game, ironically, was also at Craven Park on 18 December 1977 and Tony was called into action.

All in all he made 26 such appearances with ten games where he came on from the bench. A local lad, who came up through the Colts’ system, fate seemed to link him with Hull KR, as he made his final appearance there on 29 August 1982. Must be something to do with the air on the East Coast!
