Bonnar was an army player who played one inauspicious trial game for Ballymena during the club’s introductory season to Irish League football.

An enigma of the 1928/1929 season as there is not a lot of information known about Bonnar and his career before or after his cameo appearance for the Light Blues.

Noted in the press as being from an army background and recently having played for Derry Distillery in the North West League - Bonnar made little impact during his sole appearance in the 3-1 league defeat against Portadown at the Showgrounds, playing at centre-forward.

While he would not feature again in the starting eleven, his amateur registration was retained in May 1929 for the following 1929/1930 season, but no further note of the player can be traced thereafter.
