Ramsbottom United goalkeeper Chris Cheetham has left the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League’s Rams for personal reasons.

Signed from near neighbours and Evo-Stik NPL First Division North rivals Radcliffe Borough, the Wigan-based player played three competitive games for the Rams at the start of the new season before deciding to move on.

In a statement announcing his departure on Tuesday, the Rams said joint-managers Paul Fildes and Mark Fell were now in the process of signing a replacement in time for Friday’s home league game against Burscough.

The new Rams management duo beat off a number of potential suitors in June to tempt the 22-year-old former Bradford trainee to the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium as they set about rebuilding the club’s squad following relegation from the Evo-Stik NPL’s top flight.
