Steve Walford and Garry Parker, key figures during Neil Lennon's time at Bolton, have today departed Macron Stadium.

Walford, who was appointed assistant manager in September 2015, combined his role at the club with that of coach for the Republic of Ireland national team.

Parker, meanwhile, followed Lennon to Bolton in October 2014, where he took up the role of first-team coach.

Since Lennon's dismissal in March, interim manager Jimmy Phillips has been aided by the support of Peter Reid and Nicky Spooner.

With Trotters co-owner Ken Anderson suggesting a successor to Lennon is near, the club have reached an agreement with both Walford and Parker and have wished them well in their future career.

A statement, posted on the club's official website, read: "Bolton Wanderers can announce that assistant manager Steve Walford and first team coach Garry Parker have left the club.

"Everyone at Bolton Wanderers would like to thank Steve and Garry for their contributions during their time at the club."
