Ramsbottom United players return to pre-season training this Saturday (25th June) with newly appointed joint-managers Mark Fell and Paul Fildes already putting together a new-look squad as the team aims to bounce back up into the Evo-Stik Premier Division following their relegation to Division One North last season.
The new campaign kicks off on Saturday 13th August, and after a number of fitness and assessment sessions, the new look sides will contest a number of pre-season friendlies before the real contest begins.
