Successful Bolton Wanderers trial for Warrenpoint striker Daniel Hughes

Warrenpoint Town’s hot-shot striker has returned to Milltown following a “very successful” trial at Bolton Wanderers this week.

The 22-year old has hit 12 goals this season for the battling Premiership club.

Hughes travelled to Bolton last weekend alongside club manager Barry Gray to compete in a 4 day trial with The Trotters.

Gray commented on arrival back at Milltown that Daniel had a “very successful trial with Bolton and impressed not only the watching scouts but that of Neil Lennon, the Bolton manager.”

“We met with Neil yesterday and have agreed that Daniel will return for a second week of tests and detailed discussions in the future,” Gray explained. “No date has been fixed yet, but I can confirm it will most likely happen within the next few weeks.”

Manager Barry Gray is focused on Premiership survival

Daniel Hughes added that he was impressed with the set up and level of professionalism. “I have really enjoyed it and it has been a great opportunity to train at this impressive set-up and the level of professionalism has inspired me.

“I look forward to returning soon to complete the trial process and we will see where it goes after that” he added.

The Milltown club have asked for space to be given to Daniel at this time with Barry Gray commenting that the focus is now on Premiership survival. “Daniel’s first stage trial is over, we must now as a club and for Daniel focus on the Premiership fight ahead.

“We would ask that he and the club are given time to consider the future and we will update everyone as and when further developments occur,” the Warrenpoint Town manager added.
