Rams presentation to Phil “Wizz” Dean

Having made his 300th appearance in a Rams shirt, Ramsbottom United Chairman Harry Williams presented a framed action photo to Phil Dean before the FA Cup replay against Kidsgrove Athletic.

Widely known to the Rams followers as “Wizz”, the left-sided winger-cum-defender turned out for the club for the 300th time in the game against Mossley last Saturday, and the club made him an honorary Captain for the day against the Lilywhites.

After the Kidsgrove game, Phil’s record now stands at 301 games played (50 from the bench) with 60 goals scored, some achievement in the fluid world of non-league football.
