Ian Evatt makes sixth Summer Signing as defender pens deal

LIAM GORDON has become the sixth player to join Ian Evatt’s Bolton Wanderers revolution.

The pacey left sided defender has signed a two-year deal at the University of Bolton Stadium to join fellow new recruits Eoin Doyle, Antoni Sarcevic, George Taft, Brandon Comley and Tom White.

Born in Croydon, the 21 year-old was previously with Dagenham and Redbridge where he made 50 appearances, netting three goals.

He had spells as a youth player with Fulham and AFC Wimbledon and is an international for Guyana with whom he has won five international caps since making his debut in 2019.

Speaking about his move to Wanderers, Gordon told bwfc.co.uk: “I’m really pleased to get the move sorted.

“I played against the gaffer when he was at Barrow and after speaking with Tobias (Phoenix) about coming here, I wanted to get it done quickly.

“I’m looking forward to wearing the shirt and hopefully helping the club to win promotion this season.”

Ian Evatt added: “We are delighted to have brought in Liam, who is a player I kept an eye on last season in the National League.

“He is extremely quick and has good quality with his left foot.

“He is a young player with a bright future.”
