At least Bolton fans knew Jake Turner was in goal for their 6-1 pre-season win at Marine FC on Wednesday afternoon.
Looking at the teamsheet, you’d be hard pressed to know who else was appearing against the Northern Premier League side.
Bolton started with 10 trialists with another three on a bench of six.
Coming just days before Bolton begin their Championship campaign at home against Leeds United on Sunday, there is every right for a few fans to be concerned.
Not that Bolton were failing to see the funny side. When one fan asked their official tweet who scored, the reply was obvious.
“Trialist!” came the reply.
Marine appeared to enjoy the day despite being drubbed.
They tweeted: “Final score: @MarineAFC 1-6 @OfficialBWFC Att 192. Thanks to Bolton & good luck for the season! Good to meet all the trialists”
