How is Craig Noone getting on ever since leaving Bolton Wanderers?



The 2018/19 campaign is likely one that most Bolton Wanderers fans and former Trotters winger Craig Noone would rather forget. 

The North West club signed an experienced EFL campaigner when they landed Noone from Cardiff City on summer transfer deadline day in 2017 but it proved a deal that was fruitful for neither player nor club.

A return of two goals and two assists in 65 appearances tells you all you need to know about what proved to be a frustrating move for the winger and Bolton fans.

The 33-year-old left the club following their relegation to League One in the summer of 2019 to pursue his first experience of football outside of England.

Noone joined A-League side Melbourne City on a free transfer and the fresh start down under helped him rediscover his best form.

The winger added eight goals and nine assists in his first season at the Australian club, helping them finish second in the table and qualify for the finals series.

Melbourne beat Western United in the semi-final but unfortunately came unstuck in the final against Sydney FC, who had finished the season top of the league, and lost 1-0 after extra time.

In 2020/21, Noone was a key attacking weapon once again, scoring six times and adding eight assists, as his side finished top of the A-League.

They’d go one better and win the finals as well but the 33-year-old was an unused substitute in the final.

Noone left Melbourne to join league rivals Macarthur on a free transfer in July, with his debut for his new club likely to come in the season opener against Wellington Pheonix on Sunday the 21st of November.
