According to EFL Transfer News on thier Twitter page, Craig Conway and Ben Pringle are in training with Bolton Wanderers. Today at the Football Manc Cave, we look at what they could bring to the club in a time of need.
As all Bolton fans know, there’s been so many problems behind the scenes and as they go into League One, they are in desperate need of players. Now it’s being said that former Blackburn Rovers man, Craig Conway and former Preston North End midfielder Ben Pringle are both in training with the Whites.
It’s safe to say that fans will take any signing at the moment. For people who want to know more about the pair, we take a look if they’ll be good additions to the trotters…
Conway is now 34 years old. He’s comfortable as a winger and has previously played for the likes of Dundee, Cardiff and most recently, Blackburn Rovers. In May, Conway confirmed that he would be leaving Ewood Park after five and a half years when his contract expired.
Now he will be in need of another club as the new season starts and Bolton could be his number one option. Some say he’s too old and past it and he has been known to suffer from injuries quite often, however, Bolton will be looking to take on anyone they can convince to sign. The winger could be a good addition to the side as he’s older and has more experience than most youngsters in the current squad.
The 30-year-old midfielder has sure been around. After spending his youth at West Brom, he joined a whole host of clubs from Derby, Rotherham and Fulham to Preston, Oldham and Tranmere. He’s spent a lot of his career on loan to other teams to give him break out opportunities. The ex-Grimsby star also has had a few achievements such as being listed in the 2013/2014 Football League One PFA Team Of The Year. He was also named as man of the match in a game against Bolton back in 2015 when he played for Rotherham.
Again, Bolton fans would be happy to see a signing and he might be someone that can make a difference. Hopefully, instead of a loan spell like he’s used to, he’ll sign a permanent contract if a deal can be made and he may help in getting Bolton back on top again.
