Grant Shenton, a goalkeeper for Ramsbottom United, has recently started following the club on twitter. Now I know what you’re all thinking, ANOTHER Twitter rumour. But hear me out… The new management team have links with Ramsbottom United, the club is local to County, he’s also highly thought of in the non-league world AND Neil Young is hopeful of another signing in the next 24 hours.
On the other hand… We already have a keeper. And unless this deal involves some sort of role within the development squad rather than a jump straight into the first team, I’m not sure I can see him displacing Danny Hurst, one of only 2 players kept on by Young.
Time will tell I suppose. But in the mean time, feel free to ask Grant on twitter if he’s joining. You never know, he may favourite it! Here’s his account – @Grantshenton4
