The Northern Premier League have recently been running a poll to find the Top 100 Players of all time for their 50th Anniversary and five former Ramsbottom United favourites have been included in the shortlist.

The Committee have been through the full list of nominated players and come up with a lengthy short list of 200 players across the generations which will you can vote on through the league website and various other media portals.

There are five players listed in the 200 that have played for the Rams during our moderately short time at this level – only one of which is listed solely for the club.

Goalkeeper Grant Shenton is that man and he is joined by current player Jerome Wright and members of the promotion winning side in Lee Gaskell, Scott Burton and Steve Howson.

The voting ends on Friday 22nd December 2017 so if you would like to put your vote in, click on the link below.


The full list of Ramsbottom United associated players are:-
Grant Shenton (goalkeeper – Ramsbottom United)
