That was played in front of an estimated 300,000 people - and Billy the white horse trying to control the crowd.

This seasonsFA Cupfinal will mark a century since that famous match, hence Boltons kit tribute.

League One Wanderers are not expected to emulate Joe Smiths 1923 side and win the trophy next June but hope to get past Barnsley at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday.

The shirts were modelled by Trotters stars including Santos, Gethin Jones and Elias Kachunga.

Wanderers also lifted the FA Cup in 1926, 1929 and 1958.

Current skipper Santos said: We are all aware of the history of this great club and were proud to be playing our part in it.

I think this is a fantastic way for the players and the fans to recognise our first FA Cup win.

The photoshoot was good fun and I know the rest of the lads are looking forward to wearing the kit on Saturday.

Wed love to emulate that team best we can with a cup run of our own and hopefully they can be a lucky omen and we can start with a win in these shirts.

The match against Barnsley will kick-off at 2pm so itdoes not clash with the evening session of the Champion of Champions snooker, also being held at the ground.

The Trotters will make way for the potters, who will start at 7pm, in plenty of time so the crowd has time to leave.
