Rumours emerged last night from Non-League transfer account ‘non-league tittle-tattle’ that Radcliffe Borough’s 25 goal striker Tunde Owolabi was on his way to Chester Fc.
Chester are currently co-managed by Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson, who gained fame from their successful spell at Salford which was documented on the BBC programme “Class of ’92: Out of Their League”
Joint Chester manager Bernard Morley noticed this tweet and replied tongue in cheek stating he had no idea about the potential signing and, jokingly suggested his Co-Manager Anthony Johnson might have done the deal behind his back.
‘Jonno’ who is seemingly still on his post-season holiday judging by the selfie he posted, simply said: “25 GOALS though, GET HIM IN…”. Current Radcliffe assistant manager Frank Sinclair even joined in the fun, correcting Johnson saying “26” Actually Jonno.”
Whether or not there is something to this rumour remains to be seen, however, Bernard Morley was actually at Radcliffe’s recent Play-Off final success against Leek Town. Something I wouldn’t read much into with Bernard being a Radcliffe local. This may allow him to perhaps have a better knowledge of the player, however.
Chester certainly needs firepower up front to fire them to the promotion they were so close to last season, so maybe another look at the 26 goal man isn’t the worst idea.
What do Chester fans think, would he be a good addition to the team, let us know in the comments below?
