"It's gone mad all of a sudden," said club secretary Peter Conroy, speaking to the Bolton News. "This has caused a real buzz, but he's actually been with us since October, he is a local lad, from Swinton way, and he was mates with a few of the lads and just wanted to come down just to get fit. We had to contact Norwich City to get him released, which you never think you'll have to do in amateur football, and we've had Sky Sports on wanting to cover the story too.

He moved to Darwen FC, of the North West Counties League, on 1st June 2023.
