On the back of today’s 5-0 defeat at the hands of Gillingham, it seems that Bolton Wanderers’ new owners have taken another decisive step in determining the future of the club.

Having interviewed candidates in London, where Sharon Brittan is based, yesterday, word has come out of the post-match gubbins tonight that ex-Rochdale boss Keith Hill is the man chosen to lead Wanderers going forward.

It appears that Hill has beaten former Wanderers midfielder Kevin Nolan to the top job by dint of having so much more experience as a manager.

Hill first took over the Dale managerial hotseat in 2006, lasting through to 2019 with a spell in charge at Barnsley in between, being voted League Two Manager of the Year in 2010.

Known for his excellent work on a budget and with an emphasis on young talent, Bolton-born Hill will bring an undoubted passion for the club - more so that Nolan, in my opinion.

Hill has taken charge of 645 games as a manager, with a win ratio just shy of 40% which, it goes without saying, is better than any Bolton boss in recent years.
