RAMSBOTTOM United go into tomorrow’s Vodkat League Premier Division tie against Bootle suffering a striker crisis after Carl Lomax defected to Bamber Bridge and Anthony Johnson was ruled out with ligament damage.

Lomax left the club last weekend for a more lucrative deal at the UniBond League club after news broke out that the forward was registered to both the Rams and FC United, and United no longer wanted him.

Joint player manager Johnson said: “I can understand the comments being made behind Carl’s decision to leave the club, having only just re-signed for us from FC United.

“I know that Carl is not working at the moment so every penny counts for him and Bridge were able to offer him considerably more than we could.”
