Goalkeeping coach Mike Pollitt has left Bolton Wanderers after a little under seven months in the role.

Bolton-born Pollitt, a former student at Thornleigh Salesian College, never quite made it to the club as a player but jumped at the opportunity this past December, ending a three-year association with Rotherham United to make the switch to the University of Bolton Stadium.

Following the departures of Keith Hill and assistant manager David Flitcroft this past week, the core of their coaching staff are also expected to leave in the coming weeks as new boss Ian Evatt brings a number of his own personnel down from former club Barrow.

Posting to Twitter, Pollitt left a brief message to supporters confirming the end of his employment.

"My short spell at BWFC has come to an end," Pollitt said. "Good luck to everyone at the club."

The 48-year-old is expected to be replaced by Lewis Duckmanton, with Evatt set to reveal his backroom team in due course.
