'If It's Football, It's Vital'

No Keeper Moves Planned

Manager Ronnie Moore has said that he doesn't intend on delving into the loan market for a replacement keeper following the injury to Jason Mooney.

The manager has explained that he's perfectly happy for Sam Ramsbottom to continue on the substitutes bench in the absence of our normal back up to Owain fon Williams.

The second year scholar made his second appearance on the bench this season in our last match, and he's going to be there for the foreseeable future after Mooney suffered a cartilage injury which will keep him out for between four to six weeks.

Moore said he didn't envisage it as being a problem as Ramsbottom is highly rated in our Academy and he has faith in him being able to step up if needed.

It's by no means ideal, but how else is a talented youth player meant to really develop unless they experience real football life?

Ronnie does add that with another international break coming up, and Wales playing on the Friday and Tuesday, he's hopeful that he'll be able to convince Welsh manager Chris Coleman to let Fonners return for the Sunday clash and then travel back.

If that doesn't happen, Ramsbottom has been training with Timmo every morning, and he has been for ages as the club ensure that all keepers train together to help them push each other, and also pass on tips and advice, so with how rated as a prospect Sam is, if push comes to shove - at least at this stage - he'll have no problem leading with him for a game if needed.
