Glasgow-born striker Michael O'Halloran started out in Celtic's academy but joined Bolton at youth level and has progressed through the ranks, scoring plenty of goals for the Under-18 side.
The Scotsman continued this goalscoring form with John Henry's reserve side during the 2010/11 season, cementing his place as a Scotland youth international, where he became good friends with new Wanderers signing Gregg Wylde.
He made his first team debut in the Carling Cup tie against Macclesfield in August 2011 and was an unused substitute for the Premier League game against Everton in November.
He made another substitute appearance later in the season, again against the Silkmen, this time in the FA Cup 3rd Round replay, before being loaned out to Sheffield United to increase his experience.
He played a part in their League One run-in and play-off campaign, scoring a penalty in the incredible shoot-out against Huddersfield in the final at Wembley which the Blades agonisingly lost to their Yorkshire rivals 8-7.
