WANDERERS have bolstered their defence with another towering signing – the 6ft 6ins Reiss Greenidge.

A former Arsenal and West Brom youth product, 23-year-old Greenidge moved to Norway four years ago to play regular football at Sogndal and Aredal.

He was called up by the Guyana national squad last year and has played alongside recent Bolton signing Liam Gordon for his country.

Greenidge also had non-league experience in England with Hemel Hempstead Town and Ebbsfleet United but – contrary to Wikipedia’s listing – he is NOT the grandson of West Indies cricket legend Gordon Greenidge.

The big defender has impressed Wanderers with his rapid pace since linking up with them a fortnight ago in pre-season training and has been rewarded with a two-year deal.

He becomes the 10th new signing this summer, following in the footsteps of Eoin Doyle, Antoni Sarcevic, George Taft, Brandon Comley, Tom White, Liam Gordon, Billy Crellin, Ricardo Santos and Gethin Jones.

“I remember Bolton when they had players like Jay Jay Okocha, El Hadji Diouf and Kevin Nolan and I’m ecstatic to be here,” Greenidge told the club.

”I’ve been training with the lads for a couple of weeks and I cannot wait to get going.“

Wanderers Head Coach, Ian Evatt, added: “We are delighted to have Reiss on board with us. He has been in with us since the start of pre-season after spending four years in Norway.

“He is 6ft 6ins tall, lightning quick and has an exceptional football education, being from the Arsenal and West Brom academies.

“We are excited to have him.”
