Dion Charles reveals why he opted to seal his recent switch to Bolton Wanderers

Dion Charles has admitted that it was a no-brainer to seal a move to Bolton Wanderers earlier this month due to the size of the club.

The Trotters played in the top-flight of English football for 11 consecutive seasons before suffering relegation to the Championship in 2012.

Bolton subsequently dropped down to the fourth-tier before securing promotion to League One last year and are now looking to consolidate their place in this particular division this season.

Charles secured a permanent move to the Trotters earlier this month from Accrington Stanley and has since gone on to feature on three occasions for his new side.

The 26-year-old sealed all three points for Bolton in their clash with Shrewsbury Town last weekend by scoring the winning goal at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

With Ian Evatt’s side set to face Sunderland this weekend, Charles will be determined to produce another eye-catching display in this particular fixture.

Ahead of Bolton’s clash with the Black Cats, Charles has revealed the reasoning behind his decision to seal a move to the club.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, the forward said: “Everyone at this club has been tremendous to me from the moment I stepped in the door.

“It’s a no-brainer [to join Bolton], the size of the club, how they play suits me to a tee and I am delighted to be here.

“There will always be pressure playing for this club.

Who did Bolton sell Josh Magennis to?

“It’s something I relish and I will take it in my stride.

“I will work hard on and off the pitch and see where that takes me.”

The Verdict

When you consider that Bolton are a sleeping giant in the Football League, it is hardly a surprise that Charles opted to join them as the club unquestionably have the potential to climb the divisions in the coming years.

Having scored 28 goals in the third-tier during his career, the Northern Ireland international will unquestionably fancy his chances of adding to this particular tally during the second half of the season.

If Charles is able to deliver the goods on a consistent basis for his side, he could become an instant hit with the club’s supporters who will be desperate to see their side achieve a relative amount of success in the third-tier.

Currently 15th in League One, Bolton could potentially secure a top-half finish if they regularly pick up victories between now and the end of the campaign.
