Ex Salford City GK will bring 2 qualities to Rochdale

Rochdale have managed to sign goalkeeper, Jay Lynch. The Football Manc Cave are looking at two things he will bring to the Dale.

The 26-year-old keeper has spent time at Man United, Bolton Wanderers and Accrington Stanley. He’s also had spells at Salford and A.F.C. Fylde where he really made a name for himself.

Lynch believes this is the right one for himself to make the jump from National League to League football. He turned down other opportunities to join the Dale this summer. What can he bring to the squad?


Salford gave him 110 appearances from 2014 to 2017 and AFC Fylde gave him 81. Even though these clubs have him a lot of exposure and allowed him to grow and develop, he’s also got the training experience from Bolton and Manchester United to offer which means he will be determined. Making that jump from National League will also make him want to break into the squad and his experience will help with that.

BBM has talked about his new signing and how Lynch has been in training with Dale for a couple of weeks. He explained how the keeper has impressed a lot with his attitude and hard work, BBM also said that he couldn’t let him pass and would have been full of regret if he did. This will mean that Lynch will fit straight in at the club and feel at home which should help with his development and performance.
