You don`t have to be observant to notice that Bolton captain Kevin Nolan is a bit heavier than he used to be. A quick glance around YouTube and it`s clear that the lithe midfielder who scored the winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford, about a million years ago, has been replaced by a chunkier model.

A little research and the reason why becomes clear. Bolton are keen on player sponsorship. Kevin Davies is sponsored by Lord Hoyle and Lindsay Hoyle MP, which sounds frightfully posh. Nicky Hunt is sponsored by the town’s MPs, which shows how much they know about football.

Kevin Nolan is sponsored by (we kid you not) Dunster`s Farm.

The company blurb claims that they deliver chilled products at competitive prices. So not only has Nobby been overdosing on the pies, he doesn`t even have to go to the shop for them.
