Boro Suffer Another Player Blow
Stephen Rose

....Howson, Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club Radcliffe Borough were dealt further blows with the news that centre back Stephen Rose has now had to put his football on hold.

Rose is expected to work away for the next two months and will return at the earliest at the end of February, early March.

Former left-back Owen Roberts has also been allowed to leave and he has signed for Clitheroe.

Returning to the club is defender Dave Tickle, who has re-signed after moving back to the North West area from NPL First Division South outfit Kidsgrove Athletic, while Adam Kay has joined on a month`s loan from Blue Square Bet North side Stalybridge Celtic.

In relation to the recent player movements, manager Benny Phillips said: “The recent movements has left us a bit thin on the ground and our last two games has seen us with only one player on the bench. We need to be bringing in some new players as a number of the squad are also carrying injuries. It was blow to lose Rosie at the same time as losing Howsey at the back but these things happen and you just have to deal with it as hard as it is. The injuries to Reece, Griff and Tom are not short term injuries and it could be the end of January before any are fit to play.”

Meanwhile, the recent weather and high winds made its presence felt at Stainton Park.

Parts of the old stand on the car park side were ripped from the original structure and the damage incurred meant part of the stand had to be demolished for safety reasons. Also parts of the electric cables had to be disconnected after being torn from their holdings on the roof.

The damage meant the cancellation of the original Barrow scheduled game, but now from a health and safety aspect all the remedial work has been completed.

Major shareholder Bernard Manning said: “It was frustrating when we saw the damage as it is just added cost to us at a time when finances are tight. We are working on a new turnstile block project in time for next season but did not intend to start demolition work this early!

“We now have to focus on the project and start to raise funds via the ‘development fund’ I would like to thank everyone who helped clear up the debris and make it safe for all.”
