Bolton Wanderers are currently running the rule over 18-year-old Aldershot Town forward Lucias Vine, as per a report from The Bolton News.
The teenager, who is yet to make a first-team appearance at Aldershot, has featured for the club’s U18s and U23s up until this point, embarking on a loan spell with Hartley Wintney earlier in the campaign.
The striker featured in a Central League fixture for Bolton’s reserve side yesterday evening, with the young Wanderers side drawing 1-1 with Walsall.
Vine, who is the son of former Luton Town and Birmingham City striker Rowan Vine, also spent some time trialling with Bristol City earlier in the month, as per a report from Bristol World.
The 18-year-old nearly found the back of the next during the first 45, when a double save prevented him from opening his account.

Whilst most eyes will be on the recruitment at first-team level this summer, especially with Trotters fans confident that they can at least challenge for the play-offs next time out, it will be interesting to see how they add for their B team.
Switching things up, Bolton are set to begin a B team next season instead of their reserve side, which will offer a clearer and better-guided route for academy players to reach the first team at The University of Bolton Stadium.
It will be no surprise to see several players embarking on trial periods with the Trotters over the next few weeks and into the summer, as they try to prepare themselves for the introduction of their new development squad.
