McKee: My Second Chance

Joe McKee is hoping to make the most of his move to Bolton and repay the faith shown in him by Owen Coyle.

McKee joined Wanderers from Burnley last week, reuniting him with the manager who took him to Turf Moor in 2009.

Early signs were that the then 16-year-old would make a name for himself with the Clarets, but change in management and poor loan spells away from the club prompted his release at the end of last season.

McKee has since been given a second chance by moving to the Reebok Stadium and he has set his sights on breaking into the Wanderers first-team.

"I got in the youth team, played there every week and then got in the reserves and played five or six games and did quite well," McKee told The Bolton News.

"Then the change in manager happened and it was back down to the youth team for a year-and-a-half.

"Another manager came in and never really took any notice, so it just kind of fizzled out after a right good start to my Burnley career.

"But that's what happens sometimes. I want to come here and kick-start it again."
