Ramsbottom United are delighted to confirm the signing of Tom Glover.

Once I trained during pre-season the atmosphere within the group was great and the first time at the ground against Bury was a great turnout from the fans which inspires you as a player.
To be back playing after the last two seasons null and void is boss, I try and play as much as I can, whenever a game of football is available to me.
The pre-season has been tough, to begin with, to reach a level of fitness needed to compete at such a level but after a few weeks and a few running sessions, the fitness comes naturally. It’s been a boss few months training and the games have been just as brilliant.
My aims this season are to push myself and improve both technically and physically to become a better player, to get minutes on the pitch and for the team to have a successful season on the whole.
I’m already looking forward to the first game at City of Liverpool.”
Manager Lee Donafee added: “Tom is a player I spotted locally and monitored him for the past couple of seasons.
We agreed to bring Tom in pre-season and he hasn’t disappointed he’s trained extremely hard and is still learning to adapt to the level having previously played in the northwest counties prem.”
