Ramsbottom United are delighted to announce the signing of Jerome Wright. The 32-year-old former FC United of Manchester legend joins the Rams just in time for the 17/18 campaign after a brief stint with Altrincham.
The versatile left sided player from Manchester can be utilised at left back, or across midfield, played 400 games for the Rebels scoring 82 goals before leaving in the summer. A brief spell at Altrincham didn’t work out and he arrives at the Riverside to join other former FCUM players Dean Stott and Greg Daniels.
Rams boss Mark Fell says Wright will be an instant hit at the Riverside, “Jerome is an outstanding player, he’s unbelievably fit and knows what it takes to be successful in this division. He had loads of offers from loads of north west clubs but I think it’s testament to what we are building here that he approached us to join.”
Wright was due to make his Rams debut on Friday evening against Fleetwood Town before the game was abandoned due to the weather.
Rams fans could get their first glimpse of the new man at Daisy Hill on Tuesday night.
The new season gets underway in two weeks time and Fell expects to have at least one more new face arriving at Rammy.
“We’ve at least one, maybe two, if we can get them over the line. It’s that time of the season where some players are realising they are not in the plans of clubs higher up the pyramid, so availability is changing. We’re still very active in the market so hopefully we can strengthen further before we get started.”
