3 youth players that need to step up and impress in pre-season for Bolton Wanderers

With the situation behind the scenes at Bolton Wanderers seemingly improving, the Football Manc Cave thought they’d have a look at three youth players who will look to impress.

Bolton Wanderers were in an awful financial situation at the end of last season that saw players and management go unpaid, fan protests and also resulted in relegation. It’s now looking as though a buyer has been found in Football Ventures headed by Sharon Brittan, and some normality can start to take place again.

Bolton still hasn’t confirmed anything substantial as of yet. Which means the squad is still short of players and pre-season training has been mocked by fans, with the number of players actually there. As the situation hopefully draws to a close, players will hopefully be recruited. However, until then, I have picked out three of the younger players that will want to make a difference to the team and try to start making an impact now.

Liam Edwards

The 22-year-old spent his youth with Stoke City before he signed for Bolton. He got sent out on loan to Southport last season to get some playing time and experience. The centre back will be hoping for the first team to give him a chance as there’s not a lot of players to choose from. There’s actually no defenders listed on the club website so far, which will put him at the top of the empty list until Bolton can sign some players. He’ll look to make an impression in pre-season friendlies.

Dennis Politic

The 19-year-old midfielder will more than likely be called up to the first time this season after his loan to Salford City last year. The Romanian midfielder came back from his loan this year and is now straight back into training. According to the Bolton News, he’s supposedly impressing management and the squad with his attitude towards being a part of the struggling team. The teenager will want to meet the first team criteria and prove that he’s ready to start next season.

Ronan Darcy

The 18-year-old striker who made a name for himself after, being brought on as a substitute in Bolton’s last game of the season against Nottingham Forest last year. He is another player alongside Politic that is impressing with his positive attitudes towards training and being a part of the team. The youngster may have to be an option for Bolton if the financial situation goes on any longer, and stops them from bringing in recruits.
