In an attempt to boost the fortunes of a struggling Ramsbottom United side, manager Lee Donafee has brought in attacking midfield player/striker TOM CROUGHAN from fellow-NPL club Skelmersdale United.

Tom began his career at Tranmere Rovers coming through the youth system, making his debut for Rovers in the National League, and had a spell out on loan at Burscough.

Following his release from the Prenton Park club, he has appeared for Widnes and Warrington Rylands before making the move to Skem.

Donafee is delighted to have landed the 23 year old in the hopes that his addition to the squad will help strengthen the side and boost the goals for column.

Tom will be available to make his debut in the home game against Kidsgrove Athletic.
