ROVERS KEEP AN EYE ON RICHIE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BRIS­TOL ROVERS boss Dar­rell Clarke is plan­ning to send youth coach and re­cruit­ment con­sul­tant Steve Yates across the Ir­ish Sea to cast his eye over Dun­dalk mid­fielder Richie Tow­ell.

Tow­ell be­gan his ca­reer with Celtic be­fore re­turn­ing to his home­land in 2012 and boasts an im­pres­sive scor­ing record at Dun­dalk, with 41 goals in 95 ap­pear­ances.

And Clarke is keen to get the lowdown on the ta­lented 24-year-old.

“Richie has a good pedi­gree and is the sort of player who might fit the mould we are look­ing for,” said the Rovers boss. “We’ve heard some good things about him, but we want to have a look for our­selves and that is prob­a­bly the next step.

“Steve Yates has been out and about look­ing at sev­eral po­ten­tial tar­gets since tak­ing up his new role re­cently and I’d an­tic­i­pate that he will prob­a­bly be go­ing over to Ire­land to cast an eye over Richie at some point in the fu­ture.

“That is where we are at with it at the mo­ment and any­body who says we are talk­ing about deals would be jump­ing the gun.”

BIG TAL­ENT: Richie Tow­ell
