LLOYD Isgrove became Ian Evatt's 19th signing after penning a one-year deal with Bolton Wanderers.

The winger, a former team-mate of Eoin Doyle's at Swindon Town, played a key role in helping the Robins win the League Two title last season.

And he can't wait to make his mark with the Trotters. Speaking about his move to the University of Bolton Stadium, Isgrove told the club's official website: "Bolton Wanderers are a massive club that have made some good signings this season.

"We'll definitely be aiming to be right at the top end of the table this season and I'm hoping to play my part in helping with that.

The 27-year-old Yeovil-born wideman came through the famed Southampton academy system before having loan spells at Peterborough United, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley.

He made his move to Oakwell permanent in 2017 and during his time in South Yorkshire had a loan spell with Portsmouth.

He joined Swindon Town in 2019 where he was part of the successful side that won promotion to Sky Bet League One.
Isgrove has six Wales under 21 caps to his name and earned his solitary full cap in 2016 where he helped his nation to a 1-1 draw against Northern Ireland.

Head Coach Ian Evatt said: "Lloyd is an exciting, attacking player who we are delighted to have on board."

Evatt has also bolstered his strike force with the signing of Arthur Gnahoua on a one-year deal.
The 28 year-old was previously with Macclesfield Town and has had previous league experience with Carlisle United and Shrewsbury Town.

The French-born forward moved to England at the age of six and grew up in Salford.

He is no stranger to the University of Bolton Stadium, having spent time in the club's Academy in 2003.
