Gethin Jones has been a mainstay in the squad over the last two seasons, while George Thomason is only 19-years-old but is already highly regarded by Bolton. He has featured just the once so far this year but there is surely more gametime to come for the youngster, with the club valuing him highly.
MJ Williams is another Wanderers player to have featured heavily both in the club’s promotion winning campaign and now in the 2021/22 season too, so his agreement of a new deal is more positive news for the side. Rounding off the quartet is Kieran Lee who has been solid since joining from Sheffield Wednesday and has made an immediate impact for Ian Evatt’s men.
Tying them all down to new contracts is good business by the club – and they’ll be hoping that all four of them can play a big part for Bolton for the remainder of the campaign.
Bolton have wrapped up some good business today in tying these four players all down to new terms. The quartet are a key part of the Wanderers side and Thomason certainly has the potential to be a big player for them over the next few seasons.
They’ve built a solid squad here and it is vital that they don’t lose any of them. This is a good step in the right direction – and Ian Evatt will be delighted to hold onto them for the foreseeable future.
