Mystery Trialist: Who the Piss is Haris Tabakovic?

Replacing the washing machine with a Miele?

As we all know, Bolton Wanderers love a mystery trialist.

The latest one is no other than Haris Tabakovic. Yeah, Haris Tabakovic. Harry for short, I presume.

Born in June 1994 in Grenchen, Switzerland, he is a six-foot-four centre forward who has a fairly ropy goalscoring CV. Sound familar? Does to me.

He has been brought along to our Scottish tour after featuring - and impressing - in the second half of the Chorley win at the weekend.

Proud owner of 14 goals in 57 career appearances, it's fairly obvious to see where he fit into Phil Parkinson's plans and why indeed Philly P might want to take a closer look during the next few friendlies north of the border.

Yeah he might have a pish goalscoring record, but that doesn't always tell the full tale now does it? You only have to look at how Gary Madine has been forgiven for hardly ever scoring to see how a centre forward can earn the respect of fans without actually playing as a centre forward.

Will Tabakovic sign for Bolton? Probably not, but it's a good measuring stick by which to gauge our priorities for the upcoming season.

Good luck Harry, wish you well.
