It didn't take Rob Lainton long to find a new club, having been released by Bolton Wanderers at the end of his contract a week-and-a-half ago. The goalkeeper, who had been with Bolton Wanderers for nine years, starting with the club's U15 program, has joined League Two side Bury on a two-year deal. Lainton had successfully completed a trial with the Shakers.

Lainton had been on trial with new Championship side Doncaster Rovers last week and, according to the release from Bury's website, had "turned down offers from other clubs, including clubs in the championship, to become a part of the new look Shakers." Lainton in appeared in Bury's friendly over the weekend, a 2-1 win against Radcliffe Borough, in which he played the second half.

Bury, which is geographically very close to Bolton, has a number of connections to the Trotters. With the Shakers, Lainton will once again work under goalkeeping coach Fred Barber, who brought up the likes of Jussi Jaaskelainen, Adam Bogdan, and Ali Al-Habsi. In addition to that, one of the defenders ahead of Rob Lainton will be Euan Holden, Stu Holden's brother. Euan impressed on his professional debut, a 3-2 win against (ultimately promoted) Yeovil Town on the final day of the 2012/13 season and earned himself a one year deal at Bury.
