Spear­ing has toll lot of love for his dad!

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

JAY SPEAR­ING claims his dad’s tun­nel vi­sion means he won’t leave Bolton fans feel­ing short-changed.

The 24-year-old’s fa­ther Keith works on the toll booths for the Mersey tun­nel and is a con­stant re­minder of how lucky he is to be play­ing football for a liv­ing.

Spear­ing, who was on loan at the Ree­bok Sta­dium last sea­son, made his sec­ond de­but against Read­ing at the week­end fol­low­ing his £1.75m move from Liver­pool.

And the mid­field en­forcer wants to re­pay his fam­ily, along with the Bolton fans who begged boss Dougie Freed­man to sign him, for the faith they’ve shown in him.

“My dad is still work­ing as hard as ever on the tun­nel. He was on nights be­fore the game but came down de­spite not much sleep,” Spear­ing said.

“I wouldn’t be where I am to­day with­out them. I’ve got to try to pay back them and the fans with per­for­mances on the pitch.”
