We have profiled three players who have played for both Bolton Wanderers and Barrow.
Having recently finished his loan spell with Wanderers before returning to Blackburn Rovers temporarily prior to a loan move to National League outfit Hartlepool United, White linked up with his former Barrow boss Ian Evatt at the University of Bolton Stadium in July 2020.
Making his debut for the club in a 2-1 defeat to Bradford City in the Carabao Cup in September, the central midfielder went onto make 14 appearances before his departure last month. White joined Barrow on loan from Blackburn in November 2019 and would remain with the club until COVID-19 curtailed the season – making 19 appearances (2 goals) as the Bluebirds were promoted.
A former academy player at Carlisle United, White joined Gateshead in 2015 and despite initially having to spend time out on loan locally with the likes of Spennymoor Town, West Auckland Town, Ashington and Scarborough Athletic, he returned to his parent club and hit form. His form in the North East earned him a move to Blackburn Rovers in July 2019 and he is still under contract at Ewood Park.
Coming through the youth ranks at Bolton Wanderers, Livesey made his debut for the club in a 3-2 Premier League home defeat to Liverpool in September 2002 – coming on as a substitute for Anthony Barness just 30 minutes into the game.
Before the end of the 2002/03 season, he had made three more appearances for Wanderers and took his final total to six appearances the following season with starts in a FA Cup double header against Tranmere Rovers.
After loans with Notts County and Rochdale, he signed for Blackpool on a free transfer in August 2004 but after just one appearance, he signed for Carlisle United in December 2004. Spending nine and-a-half years at Brunton Park, he made 333 appearances (20 goals) before signing for Cumbrian neighbours Barrow in July 2014.
Spending three seasons with the Bluebirds, he made 90 appearances before a move to Salford City and after two years in his City of birth, he signed for current club Chester in the summer of 2019.
Currently on the books with this afternoon’s opponents, Zouma played against Wanderers in the reverse fixture at the Progression Solicitors Stadium back in October and at the time of writing, he has made 7 appearances for the club.
Brother of Chelsea and France defender Kurt Zouma, Yoan spent time in France with Lyon and Angers before signing for Wanderers in August 2018 to initially join up with the club’s Under-23s team. Making his professional debut in the opening day defeat at Wycombe Wanderers in August 2019, he would go onto make 23 appearances for the club before his departure in the summer of 2020.
