We’re delighted to announce Max Conway’s loan has been extended until the end of the 2023/24 campaign after impressing during the first half of his stay at Mill Farm.

Initially joining us until the end of January, Max has become a regular starter for Chris Beech’s side having made seventeen appearances, all in all, two in the Emirates FA Cup.

Max, a left-sided defender, came through the youth ranks at Wanderers before signing a first professional contract with the Whites in the summer of 2022.

The 20-year-old spent the 22/23 season on loan at Buxton in the National League North and made 26 appearances for the Derbyshire side before joining fellow National League side Rochdale for a short period at the start of the 2023/24 campaign. 

Speaking on the news Chris Beech added, “Max has grown in stature while playing here at AFC Fylde. 

“With Bolton doing ever so well his personal challenge is to be involved in Bolton’s next season’s pre-season (Whatever division that will look like) to make a mark and impression in Ian Evatt’s side. 

“This window Bolton have taken another left back. In the future, Max has to represent that answer.

“To do that he has to continue to grow here. 

“Along with his natural capabilities, he can continue to develop his overall game enhancing his strengths while challenging other parts of his game.

“There is a balance to everything and our football club is important to us which Max buys into and while he grows he also understands the importance of our challenges while he keeps building his personal game. 

“That’s why I’m very pleased Bolton and Max feel this is the best place for him to continue on that journey committing to us for the rest of the season.”
