Who is Morgan Ferrier? A look at the young striker that made his Bolton debut last night

Chris takes a look at the young striker who made an appearance for the Development Squad last night against Skelmersdale United.

The West Bank College Stadium was the scene of Morgan Ferrier's first appearance in Bolton Wanderers colours. The former Arsenal man played a full 90 minutes alongside names such as Josh Vela, Sanmi Odelusi and Joe Riley.

News of his arrival at the club had gone under the radar, and at this point it is not known whether the 18-year-old has joined us on a permanent deal or a trial, but clearly the behind-the-scenes staff have been scouring the nation for promising youngsters to join the Dougie Freedman revolution.

Having worked his way through the Arsenal youth ranks, followed by a spell with Championship rivals Watford, Ferrier made his way to Nottingham Forest last August where he was signed by then-manager Sean O'Driscoll. It appears that since O'Driscoll was relieved of his position, the new manager, Billy Davies has seen fit to allow Ferrier to continue his northerly trajectory with Bolton Wanderers.

Reports from Nottingham Forest fans seem to be along similar lines:

He's a big, 18 year old forward with a decent shot on him. I think he's also played in midfield this season.

He's strong, athletic and I'd describe him as a target man type, although he can work for the team as well.

Good strong lad at youth level, would need to muscle up though.

Fast and shows promise, needs to control his temperament better and keep his head.

We shall watch his progress with interest.
