Rowe Getting Closer And Closer… When Will He Join Record Breaker Tarpey?

AFC Fylde hotshot Danny Rowe is closing in on the record for top scorer in the Vanarama National League North, writes Richard Scott.

His opener at Gainsborough Trinity in the 2-1 victory moved him onto 40 goals for the league season and he is after another one as his second half strike took a deflection and has gone down as an own goal. The record he has to beat is 44 which Damian Reeves of Altrincham currently holds.

The goal machine is looking to better Reeves’ tally as well as taking the league title.

He said: “Yes it’s on my mind. I’ve scored goals throughout the season, although I had a little blip around Christmas time, it was nothing massive though, it was only a few games and I’ve kicked on again.

“But you look at records for the club, points wise and want to win the league.

“Personally I want to do well, break records if it can be done, so you just carry on working hard and get there.”

The Coasters visited Northomle at the weekend with their victory keeping them 10 points clear of the chasing pack.

Rowe was pleased with the victory even if it wasn’t a vintage performance by the Lancashire club.

He said: “It’s a place you come and grind out a result as it’s has been over the years when we have come here.

“The pitch isn’t the best to play on but we took three points, we came and got the three points we wanted so we will take that.

“I did alright, I wouldn’t say it was one of my best games or anything but I scored two goals.  We won the game with the two goals so overall it was a decent performance.”

Next Saturday is a massive six-pointer for the league leaders as they welcome Kidderminster Harriers to Mill Farm, where a victory will put Dave Challinor’s men 13 points ahead of the Worcestershire club who sit third in the league table.

Then after that, it’s Stockport County to visit the new stadium on the following Tuesday night.

Ahead of those games, Rowe told the club’s YouTube account: “There are two big games which could go either way, we obviously have the home advantage.

“But the pitch will also suit Kidderminster Harriers as they like to get it down on the ground and play football.

“When we went to their place it was a good game between two excellent sides, but we will have to work hard this week and look forward to the weekend to win the game and then we will move on to Tuesday night and win that game as well.”
