Bolton Wanderers are pleased to confirm that Jake Turner and Connor Hall have signed their first professional contracts with the club while Jeff King has agreed an extension to his current deal.
Turner has agreed a deal that will keep him at BL6 until the summer of 2019, while Hall and King have both signed year-long contracts. 
Having progressed through the youth ranks at Macron Stadium, Turner enjoyed a memorable 2016/17 campaign with the Whites as he was promoted to the first team and served as cover to Mark Howard and Ben Alnwick.
Also earning international recognition with England Under-18s, the goalkeeper’s performances saw him rewarded as he was named the club’s Young Player of the Year.
Previously on the books of Sheffield United, Hall joins the Whites permanently after the 19-year-old striker impressed on trial last season.
Meanwhile, King caught the eye for David Lee’s Under-23s side last season after joining the club from non-league Droylsden.
Elsewhere, the club can confirm that Harry Brockbank, Jack Earing, Cole Lonsdale and Ryan White have all been extended for a third year of their scholarship.
Having already announced the departures of Will Jaaskelainen and Callum Spooner, the club can also confirm the release of the following Academy players and young professionals;
Anas Abdo
Jack Everest
Jordan Grant
Tom Grivosti
Alex Honeyball
Sam Lavelle
Matthew Marsh
George Newell
Ronaldo Pearson
Hyuga Tanner
Bolton Wanderers Football Club would like to wish them well for the future.

King is good prospect from what I saw of the U23's last season, can't recall much about Hall but surprised Pearson was released looked like a powerful player for his age but had limited chances.

They all had a decent season so either the lack of money is a factor or there are plans afoot for an even better development squad but it looks odd when we're releasing so many young players that have been at the club for such a long time. I'd have thought they'd have been cut a long time ago if it was thought they didn't have the potential to progress to the first team.
