Joseph Michael Riley (born 13 October 1991) is an English footballer who plays for Oxford United as a right back on loan from Bolton Wanderers.

Bolton Wanderers[edit]

Born in Salford, Greater Manchester, Riley started his professional career at Bolton Wanderers, regularly playing in the reserve side. A product of the youth system, he made his competitive debut in the League Cup tie at home to Macclesfield Town on 24 August 2011.[2] Riley went on to make his Premier League debut at right-back in a 5–0 victory over Stoke City at the Reebok Stadium on 6 November 2011. He received a standing ovation by the Bolton fans when substituted late in the game.[3] After starting the next game against West Brom, Riley suffered a hamstring injury,[4] disrupting the start to his debut season. He returned in the FA Cup match against Macclesfield on 7 January 2012.

On 23 February, both Riley and Michael O'Halloran signed new three-and-a-half-year contracts, committing them to the club until the summer of 2015.[5] Riley spent most of the 2012–13 season injured and all of the 2013–14 season injured.

Oxford United loan[edit]

After ridding himself of the injuries that had stopped his progress over the last 2 years, Riley joined Oxford United on loan on 28 July 2014, where he will stay until January 2015.
