Trotters sign defender Beevers

Bolton Wanderers have signed defender Mark Beevers on a free transfer, following the expiration of his contract at Millwall.

The 26-year-old becomes Phil Parkinson’s second signing as new Wanderers boss after securing the signature of winger Chris Taylor 24 hours earlier – with both players signing two-year contracts.

Beevers was part of the Millwall side that suffered defeat in last season’s League One play-off final, starting the match against Barnsley and opening the scoring for the Lions in a Wembley trip that would end in heartache.

The central defender has tasted success before in League One when winning promotion to the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday in 2012, where he would amass 161 senior appearances as a product of the Owls youth academy.

Beevers had entered talks to renew his contract at Millwall with boss Neil Harris, who instead opted for Shaun Hutchinson.

Wingers Gregg Wylde and David Worrall have also made the move to The Den as share aspirations with Bolton of becoming a Championship side once again.
