Wanderers have made left back Liam Gordon their sixth summer signing on a two-year deal.

The ex-Dagenham and Redbridge man joins Eoin Doyle, Antoni Sarcevic, George Taft, Brandon Comley and Tom White in being brought in since Ian Evatt’s arrival as head coach at the University of Bolton Stadium.

The 21-year-old has impressed for the Daggers in the National League and represented Guyana at the Gold Cup 12 months ago.

Yesterday, his club confirmed that he had turned down the offer of a new contract and was to depart after making 51 league appearances and scoring three goals, also contributing a number of assists.

Gordon said: “I’m really pleased to get the move sorted.

“I played against the gaffer when he was at Barrow and after speaking with Tobias (Phoenix, Wanderers’ head of football operations) about coming here, I wanted to get it done quickly.

“I’m looking forward to wearing the shirt and hopefully helping the club to win promotion this season.”

With Evatt likely to play three central defenders as he did as Barrow won the National League, Gordon looks to have been earmarked for a left wing back berth.

After a breakthrough 2018-19 campaign, which ended with him playing twice at the Gold Cup alongside former Wanderer Neil Danns among others, Gordon spent part of last season on loan in the National League South with Dartford.

But having initially found game time with the Daggers limited in 2019/20, he was recalled and was a mainstay of the side from January onwards as Daryl McMahon’s side finished 18th in the shortened season.

From Croydon, he played in the youth teams of Fulham and AFC Wimbledon and has five Guyana caps in all.

Evatt said: “We are delighted to have brought in Liam, who is a player I kept an eye on last season in the National League.

“He is extremely quick and has good quality with his left foot.

“He is a young player with a bright future.”
