Injuries to Mark Howard and Ben Alnwick saw Jake Turner promoted to the Wanderers first team during the 2016/17 season.

Having impressed under David Lee with the Whites' Under-18s and Under-23s sides, the 18-year-old was regularly named on Bolton's substitutes' bench during the second half of the campaign.

With his admirers not just limited to Macron Stadium, Turner's efforts were recongised as he was called up by England Under-18s for the first time before being handed his young Lions debut against France in November 2016.

The youngster then capped a season to remember by being named Wanderers' 2016/17 Young Player of the Year at the club's End of Season Awards Dinner.
