Bolton Wanderers add Irish defender Eric Yoro to B Team ranks

Wanderers have bolstered their B Team ranks with the addition of University College Dublin defender Eric Yoro.

The Whites have paid a fee to land the 18-year-old, who also spent time at Verona and Stella Maris before joining UCD back in 2020.

He made his senior debut on the opening day of the Irish season and has made 14 first-team appearances in total.

Yoro is looking forward to getting involved with the squad and hopes he can push towards the first-team picture in the long term.

“Every game you play you learn and it’s been a brilliant experience for me there,” he told the club’s website.

“I had a call from the manager to say Bolton were interested. I was shocked. I didn’t know what to say.

“I came in for a meeting to discuss everything and I was delighted. I know Bolton is such a big club so I knew to come here would be a good decision for me and my family.

“It all happened very quickly and I’m happy to be here.

“I can’t wait to get started. With the coaching I’ll get in the B team if I keep working hard and listening and learning, hopefully at some point I can get towards the first team.”

Yoro becomes Wanderers’ seventh signing of the summer for the new B Team after Gerald Sithole, Conor Carty, Connor Stanley, Lynford Sackey, Nelson Khumbeni and Matty Grivosti.

Matt Craddock’s side are back in action on Tuesday night when they make the short trip to Bamber Bridge.
