““he was a shining light for us last season”” Jody Banim


Midfielder Ryan Crowther has been ruled out for the 2017/18 campaign after suffering a serious injury in the first half of the pre-season friendly against Radcliffe Borough.
Scans confirmed that the midfield dynamo has torn his medial and cruciate ligaments in his knee.
Manager Jody Banim was ‘absolutely devastated’ to hear the news about Ryan Crowther stating “he was a shining light for us last season”
Jody also went on record to say “I was really looking forward to watching him and Chaddy pick up where they left off. The club will offer its full support in Ryan’s rehab and we’ll hopefully have him back fit for the start of the 2018/19 season”
After Crowther scored 15 goals over the course of the 16/17 season Jody has moved quickly to find a replacement re-signing Jack Dyche on loan from Scunthorpe United on an initial six month loan deal.
