Reading Academy graduate Lynford Sackey has joined Bolton Wanderers 'B' Team upon release from Berkshire.

The 19-year-old progressed through the youth system and made his first team debut in the Carabao Cup in 2020.

He matched that last season, making one first team appearance in the 3-0 defeat to Swansea City in the same competition.

The right-sided teenager played nine times for the Under-23s team and joins the newly formed 'B' Team in Lancashire.

Ian Evatt's Trotters 'B' Team will play in the Central League and a selection of hand-picked friendly fixtures, all with the hope of getting their chance in the first team at the University of Bolton Stadium.

Speaking to the club website, he said: "Reading have done a lot for me but I’m glad this opportunity has come,” said Sackey.

“I’m really looking forward to it. I had some interest elsewhere but I felt plan-wise and ethics-wise here was the perfect place for me to come to and I’m really glad Bolton have given me the opportunity to come here.

“Some of the staff at Reading talked to me about Bolton and it’s a good place to be at the moment.

“I’m looking forward to being part of the journey and going up and up.”
