He was abandoned by his mother aged four and that left him the care of his father who was an active criminal who took young Callum on jobs with him from time to time.

Callum Dolan father ended up in prison when he was 11. He was fostered by his uncle but due to space with the property, it led to him then going into care and into a children’s home at one point. But from an early age what has kept him focused has been football.’

Callum Dolan Arrested

Nine days after joining his new club, Dolan – who was already banned from driving following another offense – was seen texting at the wheel as he drove through Ashton-under-Lyne.

When police tried to pull him over, he sped off and tried to getaway. He then crashed his car into railings and ran off before being chased down and arrested.

He was detained, wearing his new club’s tracksuit, and said: ‘I’m f****d – how long will I get for this?’

This week, the teenage midfielder admitted dangerous driving and driving whilst disqualified and now faces being sacked by his club before he is released from a young offenders’ institution.

His lawyer said it was unlikely Oldham would stand by him if he was jailed, leading to ‘catastrophic repercussions on his aim to become a professional footballer’.

But Judge John Edwards did jail Dolan, telling him: ‘You are your own worst enemy. The ink was barely dry on that professional contract you signed when you attempted to outrun a police BMW. It was crass stupidity and a highly dangerous piece of driving.

‘You have the whole world at your feet literally and metaphorically and I recognize you are a talented young man but driving in that way, can only mean immediate custody. I just hope the sentence I impose does not jeopardize your future.’
