Wales may have beaten Belgium tonight. Yes, it was an historic event. But it paled into insignificance compared to events in the North West.

Bolton have signed a palyer permanently for the first time in a year, after the announcement that Chris Taylor has joined the club.

The 29 year old Oldham born winger is unlikely to be involved against Atherton Colls tomorrow but will join the squad for the trip to Scandinavia.

Taylor spent seven years at his home town club before moving to Millwall in 2012. A season later he moved back up north to Blackburn Rovers, but spent last season back on loan at the New Den before Rovers released him recently.

It seems a good and logical signing, as Wanderers are desperately short of wide players. Official confirmation of the signing also brought up the question of whether the transfer embargo finally had been lifted.

According to information obtained by the BBC’s Liam Bradford, the answer to that is ‘no’ and the signing was completed within the confines of the embargo.

There seems to be no concrete information out there in terms of what the club can and cannot do, but it seems as though we can make a small number of signings, with the possibility of making more if there are outgoings.

But, we are signing players on proper deals again. Progress.

  • Been away for a while and just getting up to speed. Can you tell me why Ken Anderson hasn’t clarified the new position over signings. Why should we have to sniff around for bits of gossip and hearsay or the odd crumb from the BBC.

  • It certainly would be nice to have official confirmation of what sort of embargo we’re under

    Consenus seems to be a regular FL embargo now, where until you reach a total of 24 over-21 players, you’re free to make free signings, but after that it’s strictly a one in, one out basis. At the moment, we’re under that threshold.
