Evatt brings in midfielder Comley

Brandon Comley has put pen to paper on a two-year deal to sign for Bolton Wanderers ahead of the Sky Bet League Two campaign.

The energetic midfielder met his new team-mates on Monday when the Wanderers squad reported for training for the first time since Head Coach Ian Evatt took the helm at the beginning of July.

Born in London, Comley joined the Queens Park Rangers Academy at the age of nine and progressed through the age groups, eventually making his first team debut in 2015.

He enjoyed loan spells with Carlisle United, Grimsby Town and Colchester United to gain valuable first experience.

After a successful spell at the Colchester Community Stadium, he signed a permanent deal with The U’s in 2018 and made a total of 54 appearances, scoring two goals in his two seasons in Essex.

Comley has also played international football for the Caribbean island of Montserrat with whom he has won nine caps since making his debut in 2018.

Speaking to bwfc.co.uk following his arrival at the University of Bolton Stadium, the 24 year-old said: “I’m really pleased to have finally got the deal done because there are exciting times ahead.

“It was great to meet all the lads and get underway with that the gaffer wants us all to do.”

Ian Evatt added: “Brandon is a technically gifted midfield player who can build attacks with his range of passing as well as be dynamic out of possession. He is a player who I have admired for a long time and we are excited to have him on board.”
