Former Bolton Wanderers manager George Mulhall has passed away at the age of 81.

Born on May 8, 1936, Mulhall arrived at Burnden Park as assistant to Ian Greaves in 1974 and spent four years with the Trotters before accepting an offer to become manager of Bradford City.

He returned to the club, again as assistant manager, in 1981, before succeeding Stan Anderson as boss in June of that same year.

Mulhall was in charge for just one campaign, overseeing 46 games as Bolton avoided relegation to Division Three by just two points with a final-day victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Burnden Park.

He stepped down from his role in June 1982, after which he took on scouting roles at clubs including Ipswich Town, Halifax Town and Huddersfield Town, as well as a brief spell as assistant to Frank Worthington at Tranmere Rovers.

As a player, Mulhall made his senior debut for Aberdeen before going on to represent the likes of Sunderland, Vancouver Royal Canadians, Cape Town City and Morton. He also won three caps for the Scottish national team, scoring once in a 4-0 win over Northern Ireland.

Everybody at Burnden Aces and the extended Bolton Wanderers family would like to send their condolences to George's family at this difficult time.
