Stott on move to Ramsbottom
Just four days ago, in reporting Ben Woodhead’s move from Clitheroe to Colne, I made reference to the number of former Burnley players who ended last season at Colne.
But Dean Stott, one of that number, has now moved on himself, leaving Holt House to sign for Ramsbottom United, after no more than a few weeks with Colne.
Stott was a member of our youth squad between 2006 and 2008 and then spent a year at Preston before moving into non-league football with such as Hyde and FC United of Manchester for whom he is playing in the photograph. He left them only in March this year when FC United manager Karl Marginson said: “Dean has been a great servant to the club over five years during which time he captained the side and was part of a very successful group of players. Everyone at FC wishes him good luck at Colne and all the best for the future.”
Having now opted to play for Paul Fildes and Mark Fell, the joint managers at Ramsbottom, Stott said: “We had a great chat during the week. It’s very clear to me how the managers want to play and it was refreshing to hear the club’s ambition and drive. Rammy are a club who I feel are going places and I want to be part of the new era there.”
Fildes said: “There’s not many players out there at 26 years old who have won as many titles as Dean. The fact that we’ve got a lad in his physical prime, with experience of winning an NPL (Northern Premier League) title makes him a fantastic acquisition. Dean’s turned down better offers financially to join us and it’s confirmation to us we are heading in the right direction in terms of how professionally we run things.”Share this page :
