Liam Edwards joins Southport on loan

Bolton Wanderers can confirm that defender Liam Edwards has joined Southport on a loan until January.

The 22-year-old, who signed professional terms with the club this summer, captained the development side to a Professional Development League national title last season.

The centre-back has now temporarily joined the Vanarama National League North side Southport on a short-term loan, linking up with fellow Wanderers man Marcus Wood.

Details of his progress will be documented in the club’s regular Loan Watch series.
