Michael Rankine Signs

We’re delighted to announce that Michael Rankine has become the Mark Bower’s first new signing of the summer.

Thirty-one year-old striker Rankine’s signing was completed on Wednesday, having agreed terms and successfully completed a medical. He re-joins former York City team-mates Adam Smith, Will Hatfield and Adam Boyes at Nethermoor.

Manager Bower told us today, “Having met with Michael and spoken to him at length over the past couple of weeks, we’re confident he has the right character and qualities to help us improve on last season and we are delighted that he has chosen to join us over more lucrative offers elsewhere.

“He scored 16 goals last season at National League level and brings a wealth of experience, a real physical presence and the right mentality to be a leader both on and off the pitch.”

We’d like to welcome Michael to the club!
