Mickleover Sports have announced the signing of experienced midfielder Ricky Ravenhill from Derbyshire rivals Buxton.
The 37-year-old boasts Football League experience with Doncaster Rovers, Grimsby Town, Darlington, Notts County, Bradford City, Northampton Town and Mansfield Town. He was part of the Doncaster Rovers side that won back-to-back promotions from the National League and League Two between 2002 and 2004.
Sports boss John McGrath told press & media officers Sam and Kerry Goldsworthy: “I am delighted to welcome Ricky to the club. Ricky is a player I have admired and got on with for a while and I am thrilled to bring such an experienced midfielder to the club.
“He was had a lot of success over the years with clubs at Football League level and hopefully he can bring that extra bit of experience into the dressing room with what we already have. He’ll also be a good asset for our younger players who they can learn off.
“But besides all that, Ricky is also a quality and highly skilled footballer who will only improve our current squad.”
