Congratulations to midfielder Domaine Rouse, who was named as the “Irwell Works Brewery” Ramsbottom United Player of the Month for December.

Domaine played in each of the three games the Rams played in the month and was a comprehensive winner of the award, after slotting home the penalty in the 3-1 loss to Marine but has also worked hard in the win over City of Liverpool and the post-Christmas game away at Trafford. The extremely versatile player, who has played in defence, midfield and in a striker role this season, richly deserves the accolade which he wins for the first time.

He received his award prior to the match on New Year’s Day against Mossley at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium from long standing Ramsbottom United supporters club member Kevin Caudwell.

Well done to Domaine, who received the trophy and the presentation keg of ales from the Ramsbottom-based brewery.
