Jussi's Son Debuts for Under 18's

William Jaaskelainen - A chip off the old block - Alex Livesey

Jussi Junior continues the family business

This past Saturday saw a familiar surname make an appearance for Bolton Wanderers Under 18s.

William Jaaskelainen, son of Wanderers legend Jussi, kept a clean sheet for David Lee's side against Stoke City in a game held at the Eddie Davies Academy in Lostock.

It wasn't the first time that young William's name has cropped up - he has been involved in games since September from the bench, though this Saturday saw the first time that he has been in the starting eleven. His performance was lauded by manager David Lee who said:

I thought we produced a great team performance on the day and we also had two under-16 players in Jaaskelainen and (Alex) Honeyball who did very well too at left-back.

"We dominated the game from start to finish, with Stoke's goalkeeper making some excellent saves to thwart Sam Bailey and Jamie Thomas.

Jussi Jaaskelainen made over 500 appearances for the club in a 15 year spell before moving South to join former Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce at West Ham United in 2012 following the expiration of his Bolton contract.

We will keep an eye on William Jaaskelainen's career with interest.

Edit - if anyone is arsed, the game finished nil apiece.
