Rams make signing number eight

Ramsbottom United's rebuild continued with the addition of central defender Luke Thompson from Nelson.

Thompson, 25, a combative, strong defender with experience from Padiham, Colne and Nelson makes the step up to Evo-Stik football and joint manager Paul Fildes thinks the Rams could have unearthed a gem, "Luke is raw talent, he's a defender who loves to defend which is something of a rarity nowadays.  He's a leader, strong and powerful and can chip in with goals as wells.  We're keen to have a real hard work mentality at the club and Luke fits the bill."

With the Rams deep into their preseason preparations the coming weeks are likely to be littered with information on additions as well as information on retained players from the 2015/16 squad.
