9 Danny Rowe

A CV that includes Manchester United, Preston North End, Fleetwood Town, Stockport County and Barrow FC.  One game in the 23 year old –hat trick on his debut – landmark signing is already an Imp No 9 to be proud of.  For Danny,  this deal is a chance to ram those promising youth comments down the throats of those who wanted him to develop gently and Simmo will give him every bit of help he can to follow in the footsteps of his other million pound plus finds. David Moyes never wanted him to leave…. well you know where he is… and any decent bid wouldbe considered.

Thank you for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs.

Yes Manchester United incredibly agreed up to £136,000 with Preston North End for Danny at just 12 years old .Fleetwood Town also paid good money for the 23 year-old who can play in an attacking midfield, wing or central striking role.  Before we get to his  bio, pour yourself a Pimms crack open a can and let us recount a craftsman, soon to be crowned a Lincolnshire poacher………….

It was an explosive opening from new Lincoln number 9 Danny Rowe as he opened his account just four minutes in.  Sheridan exchanged with Power before galloping down the right to whip over a low cross, Rowe raced on and cracked home from a dozen yards with the inside of his foot. Rowe is almost impossible to pick up and his fitness, despite the intense heat, made him harder contain as the game went on and both the goals to complete his heavenly hat-trick would come from distance. The first was a jaw-dropping hay-maker, full on the volley from 20 yards. The second saw him take a touch, look up and then curl a crisp cultured effort perfectly inside the post.

Manchester United & Preston £136k tug of war

Danny became the star of the Manchester United U13 side, scoring for fun in the FA Premier Academy League. Preston were not best pleased as they had developed him from the age of six only to lose him at 12, when United offered him a 4 year deal (lads can’t properly join the payroll until 16).  It went to tribunal with staggered payments agreed. The payments were to be £8,000 up front, £8,000 if Daniel signined a scholarship, £20,000 when he turned pro and £100,000 after 10 first-team appearances. Preston had argued that he would have been worth a million if he had gone through their system and then been sold. It might have been the best option for a lad who was swamped at United despite the teenage promise.

Kendal Town took him on and after an impressive first half to the season he was sold to Fleetwood with Nathan Pond coming on loan the other way.  Danny was sent out on loan to gain experience in the first half of the 2011/12 season, becoming the BSN player of the month in November, a month that saw him bang in 7 goals.  Danny got 12 for the bloods in his short stay and caught Stockport’s eye hammering in another 8 including a brace against the Imps when County trounced us 4-0 in April 2012.

Danny spent the first half of last season on loan at Stockport, a side in meltdown on and off the pitch, playing in a variety of positions, mainly from the bench to the frustration of the Edgeley faithful.  He got one goal and laid on 3 in just 612 sporadic minutes of football. Fleetwood then sent him on a half season loan to Barrow in January.  Danny was an inspiration at the relegation haunted Bluebirds who almost escaped the drop. He scored 4 and was credited with 3 assists, although his all round contribution led to far more (he played with namesake Danny Rowe at Barrow confusing the life out of the stattos).

Raid the bookies Imps. This lad will be the first player since Yeo (bow thrice) to bag 20 goals. He has it all. He has the touch and brain of Jamie Taylor. He is a playmaker, who can turn a game either as an attacking central midfielder or left-winger. At 6′ 1″ he can play as a target man or support striker.  His signing should worry Power, who has still to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Welcome Danny, with assist king Sean Newton also aboard Sincil salivates……………….
