Ross Hannah, the player who broke goalscoring records while at Matlock Town, is this week back in the same division with former club Gainsborough Town and said he is still hungry for goals.

“I am 32 but age is just a number if you look after yourself right – which I have done throughout my career – and I still feel fit and hungry for it,” he said.

“Last season I still finished Chester’s top scorer, despite missing a few games through injury. I still know where the net is.”

After starting out at Worksop Town, Hannah was barely out of his teens the last time he played for Trinity. But after spells with Hednesford Town and Belper Town, he really found his feet at Matlock, scoring 90 goals in being top scorer for three seasons, breaking the club’s goalscoring record – 52 in a season – and winning the NPL and overall Non-League Golden Boots.

That earned him a move into the Football League with Bradford City and successful spells at Grimsby Town, Chester City and Barrow.
