RAMSBOTTOM United manager Mark Fell has been busily overhauling his squad as he looks to improve their fortunes.

The Rams’ last victory in Evo-Stik North came in mid-November and their six league matches in December and January have yielded just two points.

Though he says their performances have warranted far more in terms of points, Fell has brought fresh blood to the Riverside in order to give his side, currently sixth from bottom in the table, some impetus.

“Those that have watched us know the story,” said Fell. “We’re guilty of not taking our chances, that’s the difference. We had 15 shots on goal at Colne last weekend and nothing to show for it. It’s easy for me to say, but we’ve got absolutely nowhere near what we’ve deserved for the best part of six weeks.

“If these things even themselves out over the season we won’t lose again all year.”

The Rams have brought in Adam Sumner from Lancaster City. The former AFC Fylde, Fleetwood and Altrincham left-back arrives with an agreement Lancaster can recall him should they need to.

Coming from further afield is midfielder Chris Rushworth who joins from Calgary.

Huddersfield-born Rushworth had a run-out in the Rams’ development squad game against Barnoldswick earlier this month and has been training with the first team since Christmas.

Accrington Stanley defender Zehn Mohammed has extended his loan spell for another month, and fellow Stanley youngster Jack Burgess has joined on loan.

There are also two departures from Rammy, with midfielder Alex Meaney and striker Josh Kweifio Okai both leaving to move to Australia.

Meaney played 86 games for the club, scoring 11 goals while Kweifio Okai’s injury-riddled stay with the club saw him make just one apeearance.

Meanwhile, Danny Taberner is expected to have surgery on his knee injury but it is thought he could return to action before the end of the season.
