Salford City signed Jason Lowe on a three-year contract after The
Wanderers released 14 players from their squad. The 28- year-old midfielder
made 64 senior appearances for The Trotters. Wanderer’s season went from bad to worse as they got relegated from EFL League Two only to find themselves in company with their rivals Salford City in the fourth tier English football.
The Englishman has previously played for Blackburn Rovers in the Premier
League and made 173 appearances for the club in all competitions. The
former Birmingham City player looked a good fit in former Wanderers boss Keith hill’s system. After a disappointing season with just 5 wins to their tally,
Bolton appointed new manager in Ian Evatt that paved his move to The Ammies.
Jason Lowe arrives at Moor Lane leaving behind a season to forget but
was an inspiring figure at the heart of The Wanderer’s midfield and put up
stellar numbers on the charts with 1277 passes made, 37 interceptions and 18
key passes made under his belt. He was enduring well under 4-4-2 tactical
system during Keith Hill reign. Salford City boss Graham Alexander follows the
same tactical philosophy as the former Whites manager and the mid-fielder will be hoping to dwell under his preferred formation.
The new signing would be an immense impact in the mid-field area. Over
the course of last season only 5 midfielders were used with 10 available in
which only 2 players made 20+ appearances. There is no doubt that The
Englishman will come with loads of experience and that would be vital for the
young players in squad who are yet to feature in a senior professional game for
The Ammies. The Greater Manchester club is currently placed 11th in
EFL League Two and with new addition in their squad, they will look forward to put their foot on the peddle and hope for a top-half finish.
