Bolton Wanderers will be hoping to strike gold with some of their signings this summer as they look to give themselves the best chance of getting back to the Championship.
They have moved already to bring in three signings, with Jack Iredale arriving on the expiration of his contract at league rivals Cambridge United and James Trafford and Conor Bradley arriving on loan.
Shot-stopper Trafford proved to be a real asset for Ian Evatt’s side last season and they will be delighted to have him back at the club, especially with the goalkeeping department being one area they desperately needed to improve.
There are some additions this summer that may not work out though, though they will be hoping to maximise the number of hits and minimise the misses in their quest to improve.
With this in mind, we take a look at eight of the club’s more underwhelming signings in recent years.
