Alex Baptise, recently making the news of course for his arrest after defending his wife’s honour (having seen some bloke pinch her posterior!), has been sent out on loan for the season.

The 28-year-old had been linked with an exit this summer with Blackburn Rovers among the championship sides thought to be in the running for the versatile defenders services with Wanderers’ rivals snapping him up.

Baptise had joined Bolton last summer on a free transfer from Blackpool, where he had spent the previous five-years, but he’ll now spend the 2014/15 season at Ewood Park he isn’t going to feature when Blackburn come to the Macron Stadium or Bolton head to Ewood Park mind.

A departure isn’t really a surprise is it, or is it?

Mr Ecky sends his best to the Vital Bolton community, he’s currently not well, he’ll be back as soon as possible and in the meantime, he’s got a staff writer to fill in for him.

If anyone has something to share in the meantime (this gives a genuine Bolton point of view from a Bolton fan!) feel free to fire an email through.

Please include your username so I can put that to it though.

  • They were all supposedly fighting for Baptiste’s signature this time last year. What a complete reversal in his fortunes took place at the latter end of the season. He didn’t look a happy man playing at left back, while his shenanigans in the penalty area were careless in the extreme. I’m glad he has gone and suspect, never to return. We’ll probably keep McNaughton now for two or three seasons, allowing the young lads to play now and then, develop and eventually take over.
