Ricardo GardnerRicardo Gardner

At the age of 14, Ricardo 'Bibi' Gardner was playing in Jamaica's National Premiere League for Harbour View and exploded onto the football map at the 1998 World Cup finals with Jamaica's Reggae Boyz. His impressive showing, including assisting on Jamaica's first ever World Cup goal, got the attention of scouts and he was snapped up by Bolton Wanderers from Harbour View that summer for £1million. He is a skillful, pacy and predominantly plays as a left-sided player. He is also the starting left-back for both Jamaica and Bolton.

Gardner suffered serious cruciate ligament knee injuries in 2000 and 2004 that sidelined him for months but he was able to recover and become a stronger more lethal player. When fully fit Gardner is a constant threat as he patrols up and down the left flank. He is regarded by many as one of Bolton's most loyal and finest assets.

in 2006, Ricardo Gardner became the first Barclays Premiership player to be voted 'Player of the Round' and join the season's Team of The FA Cup. Gardner was among five players nominated for the award after his sterling performance against Arsenal who lost to Bolton 1-0 in the fourth round. Of the 15,000 votes cast, Gardner won 37 percent of the votes. Other players included Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand, Stoke's Ed De Goey.
