A player who briefly played for Ramsbottom United last season has secured a dream move to Scottish Premier League newcomers, St. Mirren. Josh Heaton started his career at Preston North End, but was released in the summer of 2016. In his ten years at Preston, he also had loan spells at Tamworth and Colne. He then joined Droylsden and Stalybridge Celtic before switching to Bamber Bridge last summer. He also played for Darlington in pre- season, but a proposed move broke down because of injury. In October last year, he moved on to Ramsbottom United in the EvoStik North, where he made three appearances, scoring twice. The Quakers had kept their eyes on him, and he soon moved on from the HWRS to join National League North Darlington. The Scottish top flight newcomers had obviously been monitoring his progress, and have now secured his services for £75000.
