As the 2013/14 season comes to a close, Bolton's development squad have reached the end of their campaign - finishing 13th in the Barclays U21 Premier League.

It has been a transitional year for Jamie Fullarton's development squad, as he took charge of his first full season at under-21 level.

The likes of Joe McKee, Jack Sampson, Alex McQuade, Adam Blakeman, Gregg Wylde and Rob Lainton were allowed to leave the Reebok Stadium last summer, with first-team boss Dougie Freedman opting to bring some fresh faces to the club that would have a better chance of achieving their first-team goals in the future.

Conor Wilkinson and Hayden White were the first to join, from Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday respectively, while a permanent deal for Robert Hall was concluded early in the summer. Yannick Bastos and Andy Robinson joined later in the campaign, in what has been a mixed season for Wanderers' second-string.

Highlights of the season will no doubt include a 7-2 victory at Blackpool in the Lancashire Senior Cup last October, a 6-2 win at Stoke City in the U21 Premier League in November and a 2-1 win over Arsenal in March, but there were also some heavy defeats to content with, including a 5-1 loss at Norwich City, 5-0 reversal at home to Chelsea and a couple of high-scoring defeats to Manchester United.

Here, we recap Bolton' development squad's results and take one final look at the U21 Premier League table.
