    The 26-year-old midfielder played in 22 games, starting 10. He had two assists on the season.
    In 2005, the 6-foot-2, 180 pound Penfield High and Williams College graduate spent the collegiate off season with the Albany Admirals in the Premier Development League. In 2006, he signed with the Rochester Rhinos of the USL First Division going on loan with the Wilmington Hammerheads of the USL Second Division for one game. In April 2007, the Rhinos loaned Bolton to the Harrisburg City Islanders of the USL-2 for two games.
    On February 13, 2008, Bolton signed with the Atlanta Silverbacks of USL-1.
    After spending a year out of professional soccer in 2009, the Charleston Battery signed Bolton to a contract for the 2010 season.
    Prior to turning pro, Bolton was a two-time All-American at Williams College and garnered NESCAC Player of the Year honors in 2004 and 2005.
    The Charleston Battery will participate in USL PRO beginning with the 2011 season. Created through a merger of the United Soccer Leagues First and Second Divisions, USL PRO will represent the highest level of competition in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean outside of Major League Soccer (MLS).
