Bolton Wanderers legends John McGinlay and David Lee are appealing for young footballing talent to join them at a new club in a pioneering venture launched by the University of Bolton Group and Bolton Wanderers in the Community.

Former striker McGinlay will be Director of Football and his 1990s team-mate, former midfielder Lee will be Head Coach of UoB Bolton Borough FC, offering a wealth of professional experience to youngsters.

UoB Bolton Borough FC will play in the second tier of the Manchester League starting next month (August).

Players will train and play at the state-of-the-art Bolton Wanderers Academy pitches in Lostock, at the Eddie Davies Academy, which includes a £350,000 purpose-built domed facility, with two to three games a season at the University of Bolton Stadium, home of Bolton Wanderers.
