Non-league duo Jordie McNally and Tom Sellars are hopeful of making the step up to the big time after the youngsters from Unibond League One side Woodley Sports spent last week on trial at Bolton Wanderers.

Midfielder McNally and defender Sellars are hoping to follow the likes of Carlisle United's Simon Hackney and Liam Dickinson of Stockport County into the professional game after both began their careers with the Steelmen.

Woodley director of football George Smith had no hesitation in recommending the two players to Bolton after they stood out in training amongst the more experienced members in the squad.

Bolton have delved into the non-league scene once or twice in recent years with the likes of Jeff Smith, Tony Caldwell, Mark Came, George Oghani and Ian Stevens all coming from non-league clubs.

McNally and Sellars are ones for the future though and should they sign with Wanderers will join up with the Academy squad in the hope of getting professional contracts.
