Bolton Wanderers (sort of) broke the Internet last night, when they fielded an XI against non-league Marine that featured ten trialists starting.

Wanderers won the game 6-1, with five of the trialists getting the goals.
Earlier today, the teamsheet was released by The Bolton News' Marc Iles.

So, here's a quick in depth look at each of the trialists.
Liam Morris - 18 year old right back who was recently on the books of Everton.
Liam Edwards - 20 year old centre back who was released by Stoke City at the end of last season.
Rob Atkinson - 19 year old centre back who plays for Basingstoke Town. Tipped to have a big future in the game.
Joe Muscatt - 19 year old left back who has just been released by Tottenham Hotspur.
Hector Otin - 21 year old forward currently playing for Serie B side Virtus Entella, formerly of Juventus.
Michael Atkinson - Twin brother of Rob, centre mid who played for Basingstoke Town last season.
Charlie Telfer - Scottish U21 international midfielder, formerly of Rangers and Dundee United.
Anthony Wright - 19 year old American forward, formerly with Nottingham Forest.
Luke Donnelly - 21 year old striker, just released by Celtic.
Zach Hadji - 20 year old forward, formerly with Ligue 1 side Metz.
Eyong Enoh - 31 year old defensive midfielder, Cameroon international and former Fulham FC and Ajax player.
Marcello Jones - 19 year old attacking midfielder, who spent four years in AC Milan's academy.
Yannick Djalo - 31 year old Portuguese forward, formerly of Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.
Obviously the majority of those would be possible signings for David Lee's U23 side. Enoh could be seen as another alternative replacement for Jay Spearing, where as Djalo may be the extra forward the club sign before the end of the window.
