Bolton Wanderers will be looking to make a positive start to life back in League One, after winning promotion from the fourth tier last term.
The Trotters finished third in the League Two table, and the club’s supporters will be keen to see their side go from strength to strength, as they look to work their way up the football pyramid once again after a disappointing few seasons.
We’ve already seen Ian Evatt’s side being active in the summer transfer window, as they look to strengthen ahead of their return to the third tier of English football.
Bolton are set to take on MK Dons in their opening match of the 2021/22 campaign, in what is likely to be a tricky test for the Trotters, as they look to get off to the ideal start in the new season.
We take a look at the latest news coming out of Bolton Wanderers in the last week, as they continue to prepare for the upcoming League One campaign.
Goalkeeper set to depart
The Bolton News have recently revealed that young goalkeeper Matt Alexander is set to join non-league side Lancaster City on a season-long loan deal.

John makes transfer admission
Declan John has revealed that he turned down other offers to sign for Bolton Wanderers on a permanent basis this summer.
The defender caught the eye with some strong performances for the Trotters last term, as they won promotion into League One, under the management of Ian Evatt.
Speaking in an interview with The Bolton News, John labelled Bolton as a ‘great club’, before claiming that they’re well-equipped to play in the Championship.
“It’s a great club, with all the facilities to be playing in at least the Championship. It was a great place to come and get my face back out there.
“I enjoyed it. We were near the bottom when I arrived, but went 16 games unbeaten and ended up getting promoted which was brilliant.
“I took a few weeks to make up my mind and there were some other clubs on the table, but the connection I had with Bolton was a major factor in me signing permanently.”
