Brodie in to cush­ion loss of Rod­ney

Rossendale Free Press - - Sport -

TONY CUN­NING­HAM RAMS­BOT­TOM United have snapped up for­mer Foot­ball League striker Richard Brodie to strengthen their squad after the nasty in­jury to Nialle Rod­ney dur­ing the FA Tro­phy vic­tory over Work­ing­ton stripped them of an im­por­tant mem­ber of the team.

Brodie comes with a fine pedi­gree, hav­ing be­gun his ca­reer in his na­tive north-east with Whickham and New­cas­tle Ben­field.

His goalscor­ing ex­ploits alerted York City who signed him in Jan­uary 2007 and in the next three and a half sea­sons, Brodie notched 68 goals for the Min­ster­men as well as ex­pe­ri­enc­ing two trips to Wem­b­ley.

A move to Craw­ley Town for an undis­closed fee fol­lowed, and he helped lift the Sus­sex club into the Foot­ball League.

Play­ing for a num­ber of clubs since, in­clud­ing the likes of Fleet­wood Town, More­cambe, Grimsby Town, Here­ford United, South­port and Stock­port County, the Rams signed the 31-year-old striker ahead of their 3-1 win at Mar­ket Dray­ton Town, where he made his de­but for the club, com­ing on as a se­cond half sub­sti­tute, thus mov­ing back to play his foot­ball in his now-na­tive north west after a spell in the mid­lands with South­ern League Rushall Olympic.
