Former Carlisle United defender Jack Iredale has sealed a League One move to Bolton Wanderers.

The Australian left-back has signed a three-year deal with the Trotters after leaving fellow third-tier side Cambridge United.

Iredale turned down new terms at the Abbey Stadium and now joins a Bolton squad where his team-mates will include former Blues star Kyle Dempsey.

It sees the 26-year-old continue his impressive rise after being released in 2020 after one season in Cumbria.

He went on to help Cambridge to League Two promotion before helping Mark Bonner's side establish themselves in the third tier with a 14th-placed finish.

After making him Bolton's first summer signing, manager Ian Evatt said: "Jack is a player we’ve been keen on for a while and a proven performer at League One level, who we believe can also operate higher.

“He is a talented defender and technically very good who will add to what we already have and we look forward to working with him next season and beyond.”

Iredale, speaking on Bolton's website, added: "There are some big teams in the division but Bolton is up there with the biggest of them, so it’s a real honour and privilege to be able to play for this club and I can’t wait to get started."

Iredale made 30 appearances and scored two goals for Carlisle under Steven Pressley and Chris Beech in the 2019/20 season, having joined the Blues from Morton.
