The 38-year-old reaches the Sky Bet League 2 Trotters after directing Barrow back into the English Football League this season.

Evatt, who has actually called Peter Atherton as his number two, changes Keith Hill at the University of Bolton Stadium after his agreement was not restored last month.

Evatt informed Bolton’s site: “Bolton Wanderers is a fantastic football club with an extraordinary history and fanbase and this is a really interesting opportunity for all of us.

” Ideally I can bring a brand and an identity that people will enjoy watching – assaulting and scoring objectives is what we all desire to see.

” We wish to be tough and completing for promo at the top of the department and to see a jam-packed University of Bolton Stadium.

” The community and town is also very essential to me. We will go out there and engage with them and make them proud of Bolton Wanderers.”

Wanderers suffered a second successive transfer this season having actually begun the project with a 12-point deduction for getting in administration.

They completed the season with just 14 points from 34 matches.
