Kevin Davies confident Bolton will fare well in League Two


Former Bolton Wanderers star Kevin Davies believes the Trotters should do well in League Two next term. The Trotters have faced back-to-back relegations from the Championship and League One and they will feature in the fourth tier of English football next season. While the current situation is disappointing for the fans, Davies believes they should be grateful, considering the club were nearly expelled from the Football League after entering administration earlier this year.
He added that the club won’t have an easy ride in League Two, but he is quietly confident that they will have a good season overall, he told: “It felt like the people there cared which is reassuring. There’s a lot of hard work ahead of course, League Two is difficult, but speaking to Tobias, Ian and Sharon over a couple of days I was encouraged. It’s going to take a while to rebuild of course, we don’t know about the salary caps, but the main thing is it’s financially stable again. I’m quietly confident they are going to do well this year.”
Davies has recently turned his hand to being a player intermediary. He has vowed to help the Trotters by bringing in players, who can match the ambition of the club. Bolton played most of the previous campaign with on-loan and players on free transfers. The trend should remain the same for the current season with the club not in a financially strong position to spend on new players.
The same should be pretty much the case with most of the other teams in the division. Earlier in June, Bolton decided to release the majority of the signings made last summer. The Greater Manchester outfit currently have a 17-man squad at their disposal with an average age of 22. They are likely to pursue more players before the new season.
