After making the jump between Bolton and Bury, a Shakers supporter shares his views on Rob Holding's time on loan at the JD Stadium.

Holding joined the Shakers in March, following in the footsteps of Tom Eaves, Hayden White and Joe Riley, but failed to establish himself with the League Two promotion winners, with just one substitute appearance to his name as the campaign came to an end.

In our latest edition of Q&A, Bury supporter Adam Ingram (@IngersSwingers) shares his opinion on Holding's uneventful time at the club, why the rivalry between the clubs isn't an issue when it comes to transfers, as well as whether or not he would like to see the youngster handed a second opportunity to impress.

Q: Rob Holding was somewhat of an unknown commodity amongst Bolton fans when he was loaned out to Bury in March. Shakers supporters must have known little to nothing, so how did they take to his arrival and what did he show in his brief time at the club?

A: We knew little and found out little else during his time with us.

He made a couple of appearances on the substitutes' bench but only played for a total of 11 minutes, away at Cambridge United.

Q: As a product of the Wanderers academy, Holding has progressed at the club since the age of seven. Does the rivalry between the clubs come into consideration when signing a player, or are most supporters above that level?

A: Most are ok with it. I know I don't mind. They are Bury players when they are with us and that is all that matters.

Considering the connections that David Flitcroft has with Bolton and the surrounding area, I believe it will be something that will continue while he is at the helm.

Q: Holding recently signed his first professional contract at Macron Stadium, but is likely to be loaned out again next season in search of Football League experience. Would he be someone you'd like to see back at the JD Stadium?

A: I can't really comment. We'd need some more time to assess him.

Burnden Aces would like to thank Adam for taking the time to answer our questions. You can read more of his views by following him on Twitter - @IngersSwingers.
