Ramsbottom United are pleased to announce a double loan signing from National League North side Chester FC.

Nathan Brown and Alex Downes have joined initially until October with an option to extend. Both players faced the Rams at the Riverside in Pre-season and both have already had first team involvement this term with Chester, Brown coming on as a substitute in their win over Curzon Ashton earlier in the week.

19 year old Nathan Brown has already impressed the Chester support with some dynamic performances last season and signed a contract extension in the summer, the young forward came through the Academy ranks at the Deva and was voted young player of the season and his winner against Bromley last season was voted goal of the season.

Defender Alex Downes joined Chester from Wrexham and made his debut last season in the Cheshire senior cup. He too signed a professional contract in the summer and is another tipped for big things with the Seals.

Rams Boss Mark Fell says that the club have got two exciting talents, “Both are very highly thought of at Chester, Jonno (Chester boss Anthony Johnson) rang me a week ago giving me an indication of their availability and it’s clear they have high hopes for them both. It’s great that they see us as the right club to help them progress”
